So recently I upgraded my switch microsd from 32gb to 64gb. I didnt notice that the new microsd i got was in exfat. Since exfat doesnt work very well with the switch, I figured i could format it to fat32, but would there be any problems with the card, the switch, or anything else if i were to do that?

No, it should not cause any issues like you describe if you format the SD card to FAT32, no matter how large capacity card you have. You might need a third party software to format the card though
