    I've yet to find a definite answer to this. I've seen people saying that it will and that it won't but I'd like a more detailed answer explaining how and why it will/won't get the new switch banned.

    Only Nintendo would be able to give you a reliable answer to that question.

    You can use your old account on a new Switch even if the old Switch was banned. At least that's what people who have called Nintendo up have been told.

    What if I had a custom hacked profile picture on the profile linked to my account? I assume that doesn't carry over?

    I don't think so, as there's a separate icon for your local account and your Nintendo account. You can see the icon of your Nintendo account at https://accounts.nintendo.com/

    My old Switch was banned. I've been using that same Nintendo Network account on my new Switch for over a year without any issues since.
