    From seeing repairs on YouTube, IIRC the Switch works without backlight or screen connected.

    I'm surprised nobody has made a "Switch Consolizer" mod yet. A shell that would turn a broken screen'd Switch into a proper game console in perma-dock mode. Similar to the GBA Consolizer.

    I thing a laptop heatpipe and blower fan would make a nice cooler. Just getting it to be efficient and now loud can be tricky, but you can use a liquid metal thermal paste to achieve quiet.

    You can load into atmosphere without a screen on your switch, but you need to load in directly because hekate/CtCaer doesn't show up when in the dock.
    Let us know how your project turns out.
