    Would it be possible to change a ps4 controllers firmware so that it will appear to a switch as if its a pro controller?
    So that instead of having a bluetooth dongle plugged into switches USB port, you could maybe connect a ps4 controller to your switch through its built in bluetooth.

    I doubt it.

    Would be easier to port or write a BT stack for the switch, that allows those devices through the firmware.

    The processor has been exploited and the code dumped. https://fail0verflow.com/blog/2018/ps4-ds4/

    In theory someone could try to figure out how to change it so that the switch recognised it as a pro controller.

    Although it's possible there is something in the bluetooth hardware that would make it impossible.

    I suspect we'll see a module for atmosphere eventually that just allows you to pair a ds3/4.

    Having a ds4 that no longer works with a ps4, would be kinda annoying.
