Stop trying to use PC version mods on the Switch version. They aren't the same offsets at all and tools have to be remade specifically with the Switch version instead. Back when I could get this working, all I could do was super soul mods and those only worked because it was possible to get the Switch version offsets and account for the differences in game data. Now the mods don't work on the latest version even after accounting for the changes in the game updates. I haven't been able to find out why they no longer work but now most mods aren't going to work.

That's kinda weird because it's not exactly all of them that run the errors, just a few of the clothing replacements. Stuff like the animated tails work fine for example. (Noting one of them because it's the Super Saiyan 4 bust with an attached tail to it)

But otherwise, fair enough. I'll note which ones I need to remove when I get up. Thanks for the insight.

how do u even do this??? data cpk files??? What are those???
don't worry about it. it doesn't work anymore at the moment. until we can figure out how to not only properly edit these files again but also have the game recognize them again using LayeredFS, currently these mods aren't going to work right now. I tried everything myself that I did before - getting all the data.cpk files in the romfs, extracting data2.cpk, editing some files for testing, repacking data2.cpk. While I was indeed able to edit the files and all that it was all fruitless and wasted effort because the game doesn't swap out the large cpk files in the romfs using LayeredFS anymore for some reason. Until we can figure out why LayeredFS fails for this game or can come up with some sort of circumvention where files inside data2.cpk can be swapped with files inside a folder on the SD card or something (very similar to how mods on PC work), all of this doesn't work on the latest version of the game and more research will have to be done. In the meantime, I've been spending time on reversing the mapping of save data and seeing how far that can be taken.

I find it funny that some simplistic mods like the animated tails work still. Granted, it's not very much, but it is something.

It might be because the use of PC mods was a temporary solution until they can get a suitable alternative for Switch based mods. It's possible that they took the tools down because using them is now considered outdated.

What mods do you have installed that work?
Off the top of my head I can only remember the animated tail. I'd go back on to check for you but my Switch's SD card reader' seems to have been pushed somewhat back into the system and it won't properly read the SD card without the card being held in. I've been trying to sort something out about that but it's going a little slowly so I doubt I could check anytime soon.

Any way to add transformation skills to the switch version and if so how would I do it?
Not yet since it's only really cosmetic stuff that works. I remember trying with movesets back when I was able to and all that happened was it playing the moveset's animation with the mechanics for the character I'd try applying it to. Basically imagine using Vegito's throwing forward animation but with the Saiyan Female throwing directly downward.

I'm hoping a solution's found soon though.
