    Playing online with CFW installed has a good chance of leading to a ban. it's not guaranteed that you will be banned but you should be aware that it may happen

    Yes. Players using custom firmware tools are more often than not banned from online services unless they keep their original Switch environment totally separate (by only running CFW, including mods, in their EmuMCC environment). The biggest risk is always using pirated games, but there's been speculation that even running cheats while playing a legitimate copy of Animal Crossing can lead to a ban.

    As the others said, running CFW itself online probably should be your main concern, the mods may or may not contribute to a ban too (the increased bridge mod at least did not invalidate the save hash so it might be okay)

    What should be completely fine though is playing online through something like switch-lan-play together with a prober DNS blocker, as this does not connect you to the official Nintendo servers.
