If an aluminum sheet is held between the poles of a large bar magnet, it requires some force to pull it out of the magnetic field even though the sheet is not ferromagnetic and does not touch the pole faces. Explain.

As you try to move the aluminum sheet out of the magnetic field, areas of the sheet that used to be in B = 0 regions start to gain magnetic flux. This changing flux will induce currents in the "free" conduction electrons of the aluminum to oppose the change. These eddy currents are then acted on by the magnetic field and the resulting force opposes the motion of the aluminum sheet. Thus, it requires some amount of force to remove the sheet from between the poles.

Question about magnetic force
I have some confusion regarding the magnetic force. I know that the magnetic field created by a moving charge or current EXERTS a force on any moving charge or current that is present in the field. But when trying to understand the motion of a charged particle in an uniform magnetic field, the youtube video I saw explained it like this: "The magnetic force on a charged particle ALWAYS points perpendicularly with respect to the velocity and magnetic field. Whenever a force acts on an object perpendicular to its motion, the object will undergo circular motion--this creates a centripetal acceleration)"
I am confused. Is the charged particle exerting a force on itself? Or what is the force that acts on the charged particle that is moving? If the charge particle creates a force due to the magnetic field, is the force it creates itself the force that makes it undergo a circular motion?

In explaining/introducing second-order phase transition using Ising system as an example, it is shown via mean-field theory that there are two magnetized phases below the critical temperature. This derivation is done for zero external magnetic field B=0 and termed spontaneous symmetry breaking The magnetic field is then called the symmetry breaking field. But, if the symmetry breaking occurs "spontaneously" at zero external field why do we need to call the external magnetic field the symmetry breaking field? I am confused by the terminology.
