also i used to box recklessly and i hurt my wrist so i like to use the palm heel instead, in a real fight will this have the same effects as a punch

Yes it will have the same effect. The palm strike is more "bone crushing and shocking type of blow".
You must remember to hit with the meaty part of your heel. Bend your wrist back during the strike. I like to keep my fingers more straight and spread. Also remember to turn inward so that your thumbs rotate inward. This helps to expose the heel better.
A closed fist is more likely to cut the person than a palm strike. Palm strikes are way better if you hit the persons skull or head. Fist may be better for face only.
If you go to youtube and type in krav maga you can get a great idea on techinque. Check out Miller or Jarrett or Dragon. All good.
