I haven't set up the new Switch with my Nintendo account, and my old Switch has CFW with an old version of Atmosphere and OFW from like 2 years ago. If I wanted to transfer from that switch to the new one, what would I need to do first?

I have never used this switch online since someone hacked it for me more than a year ago, and I never learned how to update it or add new games (like half the games on the 128GB are corrupted, actually), and I'd like to transfer because I have like 10 games I bought on cart and digital and would like to play them again online.

Ideally, I would make the system transfer so I have one switch for all my legit games and to play online (with all my game saves intact), and then the hacked switch on the most recent CFW possible to play single player games or "try out" games before actually buying them on the other one, and hopefully recover those 32GB from the emunand or something like that.

I know I can probably learn how to run my switch with CFW and still use the OFW online, but I got a good deal on the 1.1, and hopefully I can upgrade this one to the Switch Pro whenever that comes out.

Also, I plan on selling the 2nd pair of Joy cons, dock, charger and all that stuff, so the Switch itself will be almost free.

Any ideas or tips would be helpful!

If you really never went online with the Switch, you can just add deregister your old Switch :

After this you can register your new Switch and just download all your official games from the eShop.

Transfering your save games is tricky.
The only way is to dump the NAND, mount it to a PC, transfer over the savegames and restore the NAND.
And after that, hope that you didn't make a mistake and Nintendo doesn't ban you.
So ask yourself if that is worth the trouble and risk.

You could transfer the save data through the cloud. Also what the heck is a "1.1"? There is no such firmware or model by that name.
