    Will I get a ban for buying someone else's account?

    It is likely against the terms of service, and one always worries that such accounts are stolen or flagged for a ban. I don't know if there are any local laws for you that might allow it similar to recent software resale and clarifications of warranties rulings in various places.

    That said if it is a sale from someone local and you do the proper transfer via official means (just so happen to give them some money for it all) then should be fine.

    You mean, you want to transfer your account to another Switch? Should pose no problem.

    And by that, you also change email/password/region?

    Don't see anything wrong there...

    Probably not, unless the original owner does something to get you banned, like do a chargeback through PayPal or their credit card company.
