    I herd a lot about this custom firmware but you need 9.2 systems.
    can i get custom firmware if i'm at 11?
    also if i get it downgraded to 9.2 can i play online as well?

    You don't need to worry about this at all due to the two options @Gray_Jack gave you: either use an emuNAND and update it (so it's not on 9.2 firmware but 11.0, and you can play online yes) or use a9lh and have a 11.0 CFW (where you can play online too).

    To answer your real question, to downgrade your 11.0 console, you need either a second, hacked 3DS for DsiWare downgrade, or a hardmod. Details: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Firmware-Downgrade
    Once you have done this you can start from Part 1 of the guide.

    Couldn't he use oothax by getting OOT and a powersave dongle? Didn't know if that got patched

    I think you're confusing Homebrew Laucher with CFW
    OoThax can launch HBL but doesn't have a arm9 kernel exploit in the 11.0 to start a CFW

    Menuhax is just as good as OoThax (does the same thing) and is free.

    is there a chance that it will be possible in the future?

    Well, I am not an expert but I read that someone is currently working on a arm9 exploit on 11.0. I have no idea whether he will be successful or not.
