There is s method. I dont remember the details but I do remember it requires another switch and 99% of the time it results in both switchs becoming banned. So its pointless

Just don't pirate stuff... I've never been banned for using cfw online or at all. I don't use anything but atmosphere and emunand. Even transferring will ban eventually. Sorry bro.

Pirates are the reason Nintendo doesn't want us to hack the switch
and thus Nintendo bans their switch... Pro's and con's of pirating. Where as hacking a switch with cfw won't get you banned outright. They don't care because you paid for the hardware. They care that people steal money from devs, just pay for games it's really not a big deal....

They do care because It is easier for you to pirate games with cfw, and if they detect you have installed cfw, you get automatically banned.

Not true at all, please don't misinform other users with opinions. cfw on a switch won't get you banned, pirating games will. Just because it's easy to pirate games does not make it okay for any company to stop buyers from modifying hardware they legally paid for. It's called the right to repair. They do care if users steal games without paying for them.

It's not about games. I'm planning to buy new switch any time soon and want to transfer my save files from old switch to new one. Is there a way to do it without switch online?

Only way to get all saves is to have cfw on both then just use checkpoint to dump saves and inject them onto new console. Online saves works too but only for some games.

What about N64 games. Is there a hope that I will be able to play official n64 games when they do come later next month?

There's no way
And if I were you, I will buy a hackable Switch, then use Checkpoint to transfer the saves.
Keep the banned Switch for CFW, the newly bought Switch for OFW

Or you can also buy Switch Lite or patched Switch and transfer saves from OFW Switch.
Finally sell the OFW hackable Switch

He can't, if he's banned then he can't go online which means the n64 games won't load.
This depends, if they do the same with they did with the NES emulation, then yes its possible, I do not go online and i do not have a subscription. But i play the NES games.
There is compiled NSP complete with Games AND OR additional games not on the current service.

Also in relation to banning, its not just pirated games, I bought my switch, used CFW only for emulation.
It was this that got me banned (I suppose Emulation is a form of Pirate, but Retro Arch crashed, must of sent a log to the server and about a week later i was unable to access the online services)

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.
