    It's fine most if not all homebrew works on 5.1.0. The only thing you'll really loose is cold boot potential with atmosphere.

    If the JoyCons are too small for you, you can get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Comfort-Grip-Grey-Guards/dp/B01MUAO202
    They make the JoyCons way more comfortable to hold.
    Also, you can replace the thumb caps in that pack with thicker ones from eBay, that will give the sticks more movement, so they feel more like full sized sticks. IMO that helps a lot with accuracy in games like Splatoon and makes it easier to make small movements.
    This brand/model in particular is a perfect fit, and the exact same color as the gray JoyCons, so you will forget they are even on.

    For handheld use I recommend this: https://www.amazon.com/Skull-Co-GripCase-Set-Comfortable/dp/B078WHH1KR
    It makes the Switch very comfortable to hold even if you have large hands, and the included pouch fits it along with up to 10 games and a lot of storage space for accessories like a powerbank or a mini dock.
