    Ok so heres the small list of my questions :3
    1. dose "deleting" a title with FBI actually delete it or dose it just remove the shortcut?
    2. How do I un-link my NNID and make a new one

    I don't know for sure about 1. but if you want to remove your NNID without formatting that is certainly possible if you have CFW. Go here: https://3ds.hacks.guide/godmode9-usage#removing-an-nnid-without-formatting-your-device but keep in mind you need godmode9 and also it is highly recommended you do a NAND backup first (for more on that go to https://3ds.hacks.guide/godmode9-usage#creating-a-nand-backup. Then, afterwards, if you don't like it you can always go back by following this https://3ds.hacks.guide/godmode9-usage#restoring-a-nand-backup).

    After you run the script and reboot the device nothing will seem to happen, at least, not until you go into the eShop. When that happens, your NNID will be unlinked and AFAIK it will let you link another one. However, all the stuff that you downloaded from the eShop with your old NNID will be unplayable (even themes) so you should do save backups before attempting anything...

    Probably home.
    Deleting with FBI does delete the title, AFAIK. Why would it just delete the icon?

    I was thinking that too. I just didn't want to say so since I'm no expert on this...

    I never use FBI to delete titles - why would I when I can just use the system settings in most cases?
