    1. Yes, pretty much. To use CFW, you need to have 9.2 firmware or lower. For now, at least. Don't lose hope
    2. As general rule, if you don't need to update, don't. But honestly, I don't really know. It's really up to you
    3. You can use Cubic Ninja launched from Sky to back up your saves and launch HANS
    4. You need to get a private header or else you'll have high chance of ban. Also you sometimes will need to get updates from eShop to play (for Pokemon, for example), so you need latest update to have an access (regarding question 2)

    1) Yes, Sky3ds is the only option.
    2) Leave it in 9.4, you can use Menuhax with it.
    3) You can manipulate savegames to cheat using svdt launched with Menuhax.
    4)It was easily possible with the blue button cart but some things have changed, the cart hasn't been released yet so we don't know.

    The secret hidden option is to buy a game.

    If you're on a lower version just update, no use staying on an older version if there is an exploit in Homebrew, it works on all firmwares depending on what you have. (So remember to put Cubic Ninja on that Sky3DS!)

    Maybe some day will be a CFW but if you update your New3DS you only kill the posibility to install this, it is your choice, I have a New3DS with blue button Sky3ds and stay in the stock firmware 9.6 for future CFW.

    On 9.4 you can use browserhax or menu hax to load everything you need and then sky3ds+ on the side, the sad part is not being able to enter the e-shop :(

    You can play online with sky, I am on 9.4 and I play pokemon online (retail cart but it's the same) but I download the updates back when the e-shop wasn't patched(some games you need the updates to play online mh4, smash, etc). I have seen some games with the update included in the rom in that iso site so maybe you could try with one of those not sure though.
