Do periodontal ligament problems just heal themselves?

They can

Collateral_ligament_repair
Think of the ligament as a cushion. It will recover from some, minor trauma. A partial avulsion of a tooth or trauma can heal itself once the trauma is removed. The ligament will respond well. The cells in the PDL also play a significant role in regeneration and tooth movement.

The function of the periodontal ligament is what?

Has several

Dental
There are several purposes. The primary purpose is to attach the teeth to the bone in a manner that enables them to move - absorb some pressure/force without breaking. They also enable teeth to move - with braces. They also contain stem cells that can be recruited to enable bone/tooth to be repaired/rebuilt.

How much impact does it take to get a bruised periodontal ligament?

Quite a bit

Bruise
You can bite with a lot of force so to bruise one would be difficult under normal function, but if you unexpectadly hit it with a bone or something very hard that you shouldn't bite on, that will do it. A bruised ligament is really tears of some of the fibers and that can make it very sore to bite on and even feel swollen, not look it though.
