    There are several of of these bugs crawling out on the leaves, flying out during watering.
    Does anyone know what are they and Will they cause any problems to my paph and what can I do to prevent it?

    That looks like a fungus gnat. It might mean that conditions are too wet, but they don't really harm the plants themselves.
