    I just updated my Switch to 6.0 with ChoiDujourNX so I can downgrade again, but I have this Controller nag to update their firmware.
    Is it safe to update the controllers (will it burn efuses) or is there any other way?

    The Joycons have their own firmware so there's no e fuses for them to burn. However if you have certain hardware mods on your joycon(like pin bridging) there is a risk that your joycon will stop working

    When you connect a joycon to a switch with the newest firmware and you do a joycon firmware update on it. Does anyone know if they will stop working on an older firmware (4.0.1) then?

    after updating my switch to 6.0, i have to update my joycons.

    My right Joycon is modded, so i have to reboot the switch 3 times, and desynchronize, then resynchronize my right joycon several times to make it work again. It was a pain in the ass due to this new firmware, but it works now.
