The Nintendo Switch outputs LPCM 5.1 audio which should play just fine when connected directly the the AVR; however, if connected to the TV will likely only play PCM 2.0 via HDMI(ARC) or optical.

If the 3rd party seller on Amazon is not an authorized Denon dealer, the warranty isn't valid. Only when you see "Sold and Fulfilled by Amazon" is when Amazon is the dealer.

Nope. AVRs only have 12v trigger "outputs"; however, the LX50 doesn't even have a 12v jack at all. Either use a universal remote (eg. Harmony 650) or a smart power strip.
