/T/ -> /t_d/?

I have got two maybe a little stupid questions.
My first question is whether ...
(A) it would be likely that /T/ changes into /t_d/?
My naming language Ambrian has /T/ and /t/, but Ayeri has
only got /t_d/. Nevertheless I think /t_d/ can develop
easily to a fricative. So would it be ...
(B) sensible at all to have a sound change if the language
at least in some dialects accepts /T/ (the ones near to
the area where Ambrian is/was spoken? I guess /T/ would
change to /s/ in conservative dialects, just like many
Germans do because they're ashamed to pronounce /T/.
