    Right now I am running LUMA CFW/AL9H

    But I want to try a method to play 3DS with a gamecube controller and also something i saw that lets me capture footage wirelessly over network to my computer, both of which require "NTR Firmware" so that means I would have to replace Luma 3DS? it's a little confusing. if so, can i dual boot firmwares somehow? i cant find any clarification on this

    NTR CFW runs on top of Luma3DS. Just install BootNTR Selector.

    Between insane and insecure
    NTR isn't a standalone CFW, it's a plugin that it needs to be launched through an actual CFW to work
    You can use this to set it up

    But to answer another question, you can actually multi-boot CFWs on the same system without hassle. CFWs only apply patches and read the NAND, they are not permanently written to the system. Right now I am running a privately developed CFW from my CTRNAND, and booting into Corbenik, ReiNAND, and CakesFW. All of them are running on the same NAND without a single issue.
    To multi-boot CFWs you can either use a chainloader like Luma3DS and Corbenik provide.
    Or use a bootloader like BootCtr9
