I want to decide between either a switch or Xbox one S, so I wanna know if I can pirate my switch and and play backups then exit the cfw to go back to the normal system and play online games that I bought. Is that possible?

its possible to make a secondary Virtual image of your Switch FW on SD card and switch between them, one CFW and one OFW
i didn't do it, i know its possible

search in switch section, there is a tutorial about it {EmuNand}
and someone already had the same question

This is the guide you want to use:
https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/

It shows you how to set up emuMMC/emuNAND (two different words that in the case of the Switch, mean the same thing.)

With emuMMC, the internal memory of your Switch is copied to the microSD card, and the Switch runs off of that instead of it's internal memory. When you want to play online, just reboot without using CFW, and your Switch will be in it's pre-hacked state. If you do everything right Nintendo has no way of knowing you hacked your Switch.

The important thing though, is to ensure that the Switch you get is hackable. The "patch" is a hardware patch that Nintendo started putting out with new Switches. Some are vulnerable, some are not, and right now your best way of knowing is by checking the serial number.

An unpatched Switch is the best case scenario, it can be hacked on any system version, including the latest 9.0.
A patched Switch can be hacked as long as the firmware is left at 4.1.0, using PegaScape. BE CAREFUL AND FOLLOW A GUIDE BEFORE DOING ANYTHING! If you put a patched 4.1.0 Switch online without the right blocks in place, it will see that there's an update available and you will get an update nag that will prevent you from hacking it.
Some patched Switches come out of the box running firmwares above 4.1.0, and presently cannot be hack at all, and may never be hackable at all.

short answer is, yes you can.
trough the use of hekate you can switch between emunand and sysnand as easily as a reboot

If your CFW is stored in an emunand, then yes, you can. You can use Hekate to boot either into CFW or OFW.
If you flashed the system to install CFW un your sysnand, then no.
