Similar to this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/eshop-saved-nnid-password.480726/

I bought my switch used back then and the seller included his eshop account that had breath of the wild bought and installed, now that was fine all the years but now I want to switch to the nintendo switch lite but I never got the password for this user account, is there any way I can get it with CFW?

Well the account is automatically logged in on my switch, I just need to read the password that's hidden in case it doesn't work trough a token of course, I don't think it's illegal, at the end I bought the switch with the account I just never asked for the password since it worked fine without it

why not ask the dude for the password? i don't think it would be saved in plaintext and be readable even with cfw

This would not be legal. You got lucky that that guy did not factory reset the console.
If you would have bought the console with the account, he would have send you the nnid/password or send you a pw reset request to your email.

Current security and state of the art practices do not allow Nintendo to save user passwords on the console. They save the nnid and/or a token associated with the account.
As long as the lite is not hacked, a way to inject the token is found and Nintendo is checking tokens against the requesting deviceID / model, you are out of luck.
