Discussions with brief summary of the Kobe group's experiments are given. Phenomenological modeling on mechanisms are made for explaining observed anomalies in D(H)-overloading and high heat-power release rates from nano-palladium-particles and binary metal PdNi nano-particles dispersed in/on ZrO2 ceramics supporter flakes under D(H)-gas loading at room temperature. Roles of PdO layer and Pd-ad-atoms (incomplete outer shell) of nano-Ni-core are modeled as mesoscopic catalysts which have sub-nano-holes (SNH) on nano-particle-surfaces. SNH may realize strong sticking force for D(H)-gas to dissociate and diffuse rapidly into inner local lattice sites. During the beginning process, 4D/TSC cluster fusions with 1watt/g-Pd(or PdNi) may happen on surface. By the very over-loading (x>>1) states in the later region of Phase-I and in the Phase-II after saturation, TSC formation inside nano-particles may be strongly enhanced by the non-linearly coupled QM oscillation (high free energy states of deuterons in local Bloch potentials) under the deep mesoscopic global collective potential well.
