Tutorial on how to mod 3DS

A Request for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

I really want to mod my 3DS as well as not bricking my system from either a system firewall built-in or Nintendo bricking it online. 
I just want to be able to download skins and custom music like I did for the Wii U and play Online, to keep it fresh. 

Though, unlike the Wii U modding, their is a unclear number of ways of modding guides for the 3DS and I'm honestly not sure which is which and what would be best suited for me not to get banned/bricked in anyway. Multiple mods like homebrew channel or "Luna 3ds". 

Could someone link me to a great tutorial that meets my needs and also provide information regarding whether they have ever been banned for just modding for skins?

    Friendly tip:
    Never follow video guides.
    It will potentially brick your 3DS.

    Before you start modding your console, make sure you have a bigger SD Card like 8GB or 16GB so that you won't have issue on "Memory full" and force shut down the progress which leads to bricking. Never force shut down.

    And no, you won't get banned for modding Smash unless you're doing things like adding in the Mii Fighters and using them online.
