Do I need to assemble this myself?
Yes, but no soldering required to get a basic keyboard with switches.

Is it hot swap or are the switches soldered on already? Sorry I'm confused and new lol.

The PCB is hot-swap, but the kit comes in pieces so you will need to screw the parts together.
Hot swap, you just pop the switches into the hot swap sockets after aligning them. Only if you want to add LEDs, bluetooth module, JTK connector, et al then you are on the hook to solder those on.

what is the limit of the number of writes to the on-board ROM? i.e. how many times you can flash the firmware before the device turns into a brick?

From what I could find out the Preonic uses the STM32F303 microcontroller. According to the datasheet, the flash has minimum endurance of 10k write cycles (page 82).

LED ready--meaning LEDs need to be soldered to the board (yes/no)?

The board comes with presoldered addressable LEDs around the edge of the board, other than that there is a cutout under each switch where you could put LEDs but there is nothing else other than the hole. If you wanted per switch LEDs you'd have to wire them separately.
