    So I downloaded this IOS Patcher for Wii U (https://github.com/larsenv/IOS31-Patcher/releases/tag/v1.2.1) and i downloaded the Wii U version. Then I dumped IOS31 from my vWii with YABDM. Then I patched the .wad on my computer with the patcher. It made a new .wad. So is it safe to install this patched IOS31 pn my vWii? I used the IOS31 dumped from my vWii. (I am installing .WADs with YAWMM)

    If you use the correct version, the Wii U version, yes. It is safe to install. Never used it though (RiiConnect). According to the site it is recommended to use wii though if you want these functionalities apparently.

    Be sure to keep your backups incase you need to update Wii U.

    Backup IOS wads? Yeah, I dumped my vWii's keys, NAND, and IOS right after I installed the HBC

    Yes, you NEED the original vIOS 31(which you said you backed up) safe and sound(for the future).
    Because: even though it is unlikely that the vWii will ever be updated, if there is an update for the Wii U IOS system files(in the future), you would most likely not be able to update without reinstalling ALL of the "stock"/original vWii vIOS,first.

    When I install the patched IOS31 .wad? Will it effect the other unpatched IOS31?

    Install the IOS31 wad will overwrite the "WAD" on the system, not your backup.
