    I was wanting to homebrew my Switch recently, but I've been getting cold feet. Is it safe? Reversible? Can I play new games and take advantage of Nintendo Switch Online features without getting banned? I just don't want to lose that stuff, but I want to experiment with the hacking scene of the Switch.

    Safe in terms of what? There is a very small chance you can damage your console by performing the exploit but you really have to try for that to happen. Its not safe from bans if that is what you wondering instead. It is technically not reversible because there is nothing to reverse; no part of the basic exploit chain gets installed to the system.

    Yeah, safe from bans. I might not play online a lot but I pay for the subscription for the NES/SNES games. Is there a "safest" way?

    If you use emuNAND and you don't install AutoRCM then there are no changes actually made to the system, everything resides on the SD card, simply boot the system normally and it's completely stock and it's safe to go online as long as your sysNAND is kept clean. Take out the SD card and there are no traces of CFW ever being used.
    You should use 90DNS on your emuNAND and modify exosphere.ini to blank out PRODINFO, so you can safely connect to wifi for homebrew use in emuNAND.

    There is no safe way. Hacking always puts you at risk for getting banned.
