Dear J
There are no dangers to going to sleep directly after eating, you may just pick up weight if you eat late at night and not use the energy! If you eat a big meal and then go swimming, the blood is diverted to the stomach for digestion and you may be more prone to getting cramps when you swim, so it is better not to swim on a full stomach or for half an hour after a big meal.
