I need to remove the CFW from one 3DS, move the SD card to another 3DS, then reinstall CFW. I am aware Removing CFW will prevent unsigned games from working, but will they work again if I reinstall everything?

Please describe a little more what your actual goal and/or problem is.

B9S is installed to the internal NAND. The SD has nothing to do with this. The CFW (Luma3DS boot.firm) doesn't do anything on a non-CFW console.

I have games on an SD card, which I use on a CFWd console. How would I transfer all these games and software to the new console, which is unmodified? I would need to mod that first, which requires some stuff on the SD card?

There's not absolute need to uninstall and then install again the hack/CFW.

And if you want to move your actual console content to another console (in order to use that content), just moving the SD (or copying the entire files/folders) does nothing. You must perform a transfer between consoles (depending if you want to use only legit or also unlegit content)

I have used FBI to install stuff to my 3D. How do I get this stuff on my new 3DS without installing everything from scratch?

OK- doing some more research, I can just use the SD card on my new 3Ds, CFW it, and should have access and be able to run any installed games and home brew apps, yeah?

No

Just follow that was said here:
Don't remove CFW for such a thing. Bad idea. We have a nice tutorial for this on the forum:
How to perform a System Transfer without losing non-legitimate titles

If you have any further questions or problems, just ask again.

Good luck and have fun!
