    My 3ds is currently on fw 9.4.0-21u with menuhax. If I update to the latest fw will I still have access to the homebrew launcher? (I dont have oot or cubic ninja but I want to go online.)

    Don't update. Downgrade to 9.2 and use menuhax or A9LH (recommended) to run CFW. If you update to 11.0, you'll need to use a secondary exploit for homebrew, and you won't be able to downgrade without a hard mod.

    So as I understand it, if I downgrade to 9.2 then I will have online access?

    No, but you'll be able to use emuNAND or A9LH which will enable you to update to the latest FW while keeping the benefits of a 9.2 system.

    in short, yes you will be able to play online when you downgrade and set up cfw/etc.

    Sorry for saying 3ds earlier but I have a 2ds. Will downgrading and/or installing a cfw be affected by this?

    "2DS" is basically "Old 3DS". nothing's different on 2DS.
