    If I only use the switch as a home console in the dock,

    should I leave the jig on ?

    What is the easiest way for me to get into CFW ?

    Just use sleep. Then you never have to use the jig again.

    Just use sleep mode while it is in dock to prevent from drain the battery when JIG is on.

    The easiest way would be autoRCM. No jig required after the first time. You still have to inject a payload though (dongle, PC, phone, etc.).

    could I install the cfw

    and then I could leave it in sleep mode forever, and then the CFW is always active.

    It only needs to be "reset" if you power off ?

    CFW ain't permanent, once you shut if off you need to rerun the payload.

    if i install nsp games, turn off my switch,

    do they disappear from the menu screen if I don't activate CFW, the next time i turn my switch on ?

    I only need the cfw to install games.

    The games doesn't disappear but you need to rurun the cfw payload to be CFW state, and able to play those games. Closest thing to a permanent CFW right now is a modchip for unpatched unit.
