Doug wrote in two questions about Esperanto.

In response to question 1 (regarding h^): I learned Esperanto from
two native Esperantists, and they taught us words with h^, and never
even mentioned anything about its being replaced by k.   The only
word I really remember with it in it is h^oro (for "choir").

In response to question 2 (regarding loan words from Esperanto to
English): Sure, there's one:

Esperanto (n.) name of a language created by L.L. Zamenhof in 1877,
intended for international communication.

Perhaps "esperantist" is in there, too.   ;)
