    Should I only download game updates from my computer and install them with BigBlueMenu, or can I just use the eShop too, without any problems?

    I don't think eShop will let you install updates for CIAs?

    You can, you don't even need the games to download the updates.

    You can download updates from eShop just be sure that your game is the same region as your console.

    Eh? I read multiple times that eShop will delete installed CIA-files.

    Not if your emunand is unlinked.
    Edit: eshop won't do that, if your emunand partition is linked it will delete all your custom themes and dlc's.

    You need to remove your SD card and format your console via the System Settings in Sysnand. Just be sure to remove your SD card before you format so your progress stays.

    That's false.
    I have emunand unlinked (i have 4 folders) and when I connect my 3DS to eShop, all DLC are deleted.
