    At the computer.
    What the Arm9Loader™ does is apply the patches contained in arm9loaderhax.bin, so, you could just replace the Luma3DS™ payload with another one.

    Part of my sticky actually covers this ^_^
    But basically, CFWs only apply patches to the NAND and are basically only a means of reading the NAND. But you can safely switch and or multi-boot CFWs on the same system. In fact, I am running 5 different CFWs right now on my 3DS and I have never suffered any ill effects from doing so.

    tl;dr: Yes because these aren't actually CFW's, they're just a bunch of system patches.

    Yeah, you see, Corbenik™ is a CFW™ mainly intended for developers and has a Noob™ aggresive GUI.

    I am going to be honest with you and don't take this personally. If you don't know how to do this, Corbenik might not be the CFW for you. Corbenik is not intended for the faint of heart and is intended for powerusers/devs. Still, you can use Luma3DS's chainloader to boot into Corbenik.

    Just setup the CFWs like you normally would, then rename the launchers. So say you are going to Luma3DS and Corbenik. You setup your launcher (using Luma3DS as an example) and keeping the Luma3DS launcher named "arm9loaderhax.bin" and renaming the Corbenik launcher from "arm9loaderhax.bin" to let's say "Corbenik.bin"
    Then you just place that bin file into the "/luma/Payloads". Once there you launch into the payload menu and you can launch Corbenik that way.

    Chainloading, if you hold "Start" while booting the system, you can get into the chainloading menu.
