I just got a new Switch Lite console after selling my original back in January. Before I did however, I transferred my profile and save data to my girlfriends console just in case I ever got another one.

The problem is, while I am still with the GF, she has had to move back to her parents for a while so we no long live together and I worry if I link my account to this new console, I'll have issues transferring the saves (Any not saved to the Cloud like Monster Hunter, Splatoon 2 and Pokemon) to the new console. The reason I'm being so impatient is because I won't see her till the weekend, and I can't seem to do jack with the console without a linked account.

I've been burned by this before in the past on the 3DS... so just wanna check with you smarter folk... Do you know if I can register my account to this new console, can I still transfer the backed up account or should I just wait?

You can have a primary console for your account by transferring your account to the new unit, those save will be linked to the account they were played with. Also game that were purchased with your old account wouldn't work on your girlfriend unit unless you link that as a secondary unit.
