Analysis by Craig Hemphill

North's hand is not suitable for a 2 overcall, holding just five cards in the suit, a wasted Q, no singleton, and a four card heart suit. Perhaps South can balance?

No -- the hand belongs to East - West, and no bid by north could have dissuaded the opponents.

Best that North leaves the auction quietly, giving nor information to guide declarer in the play.

Of course West probably won't have any difficulty making eleven tricks.
