Default Office 365 Home - logging in as a different user

If I bought Office 365 Home under a MS account/email address, activated the Office programs using this email address, but then logged in to the products under a different MS account/email address, what will happen? That was what I did. I'm still in the free trial period. Once the trial is over, will I be told that I'm not an authorized user for this product?

When I go into any Office 2016 program, the account info shows the product "belongs to" the email address I used to buy this product. But the "user info" shows the different address that I logged into.

When I go into OneDrive's settings, I see only 5GB of online space, not the 1TB that an actual Office 365 Home user should have. So am I not an authorized user?

I have to use a different user's email address because I have existing data in that account that I want to open in Office. I'm aware that the user who bought the product can "invite" another user to use it. The user I'm logged into is NOT from an invitation. After I activated the product, I simply signed out, then signed in as a different user. Does a user/email address have to be "invited" to become an actual user?

Thanks in advance for any help.
