Or create own cartrige

No, it's not possible.
There are rewriteable Switch Cartridges and a HAC-Writer (Cartridge Writer for Nintendo Switch) for Developers but the Cartridges does not work with Retail Games or Retail Devices.
They only work on the HAC Dev Unit.

so in order to have free games you need to buy 500USD version of the switch but if you think about it its still cheaper

And sign the Nintendo Non-Disclosure Agreement.

And not use the development system in public.

And figure out how to decrypt retail games and re-encrypt them for debug.

At this point, it's cheaper and less effort to buy the damn game in the first place.

EDIT: Oh, and no online play.

Nope. Still won't work because retail dumps doesn't work on the Dev Unit^^
That would only work if someone could mod the dev kit to run retail games so it needs a hack... Games have their protection and the dev kit doesnt also run protected retail games...

Its not as easy as just getting some game retail dump and put it into the devkit to run, they first need to do a lot of work, so either way we are stuck for now :(

However you can make your own stuff to run on a devkit and for a game developer I think this is such a wonderful device since its probably the most portable high performance gaming device on the world to run your games.

Switch devkits probably cost a LOT more than $500.
From what I can tell, the EDEV model (similar to retail; has minimal debugging functionality, sort of like RVT-R and CAT-R units from previous generations) is around $750, or $1000 for the 64 GB model.

SDEV, which has a bunch of extra ports and can't be run off of battery, costs significantly more.
