    atmosphere or SX OS. IF using sx os no support will be given from me for retroarch

    the devs of retro arch have stated that the best way to go is FAT32
    (they also stated that they will NOT give any support for exfat SD cards)

    since you are creating a clean partition on your SD card try go ahead and use FAT32
    and yes NSP is more stable/better ( it has to do how mem works on the switch)
