The safest way probably is to install the FMCB-Nooby-Package to a clean (2nd) MC, but if you only have one for example you wonīt break anything (your existing Saves, or the PS1-Exploit), when you install FMCB.

What the others already said. No, you wonīt lose your saves, since you donīt need to format the MC.
Also, does this format my MC and do I lose my saves?
It is only recommented, to guarantee the highest chance for a clean and valid install.
Try it out.
Another thing is having to have a correct configuration always scares me cause I feel like I'm going to mess up(a reason I never upgrade ule).
You donīt need to configure much, with the FMCB-"Nooby-Package".
If you want, you can also put your ELFs on a USB-Stick and load it from there, to save even more space on MC.
