New to Hackintosh and need help

Im new to all this, but want a Hackintosh. I replaced the SSD (256 gig M.2 drive) on my laptop and I have a few questions. I know they may be dumb, but I wanted to know. Can I just boot off the SSD with MacOS separately with an adapter and restart my laptop when I want to gi back to Windows? Is there any way I could potentially loose my copy of Windows? I downloaded CloudReady onto a USB drive and threw it onto a micro computer for my younger brother for school, and that gave me the option to delete the previous OS and install it. Can that happen? Im sorry im not the best with this but I hope to not be a problem. Thank you :)
