I'd like to know if there are any differences in damage and other effects (like limping) if I aim for the head, limbs or other body parts of enemies, or does it not matter which body part got hit?

There does not appear to be any effect to shooting a particular part of an enemy's body. Most notably, I've landed 4 square headshots in a row on a bulky Taken, and it still took 6 revolver shots to kill on medium difficulty.
