    I believe there is a string in system settings, near the version number, it should say Sys if you use a9lh sysnand patched, but if you have an emunand and launch it at boot, it should say something else, like emu or the like.

    If you followed 3ds.guide then you don't have an emuNAND. EmuNAND is outdated so you won't have one unless you had CFW before last year and are being obstinate about keeping it (or you are keeping it for a specific purpose like having a region changed emuNAND).

    To directly answer your question, System Settings will say "sys" before the firmware when you're on sysNAND and "emu" when you're on emuNAND.

    You can just copy and paste the files to change SD cards.

    It's good to make regular sysNAND backups but that isn't needed just to upgrade your SD card.

    After Copy and pasting, Is there anything from the Arm9 that i can delete to free up some room?

    At the end of the installing a9lh page, there's a section that tells you what files you need to keep
