If I have this:

local function wrap(something_important)

  return wrapper

Is it guaranteed that 2 calls to wrap() won't cause weird fucked-up semantics? E.g. can I do this?

local wrap1 = wrap(1)
local wrap2 = wrap(2)
wrap1() --> prints 1
wrap2() --> prints 2

Yes, closure "wrapper" is guaranteed to be a new function every time.
Because this closure refers to local variable "wrapper" which is different every time.
