    I was always told to keep Luma up to date and to only update through system menu never update prompts but why would that make a difference or matter?

    The difference doesn't matter, I just updated one of my consoles through the prompt. Nothing broken or anything.

    As long as you have luma, yes you can (don't know how it is on different cfws)
