No, you simply transfer your number to another sim card.

No all your account details will remain
Only the sim changes

No. The entire purpose of a simswap is to transfer all existing account details from an activated sim to another ( unactivated ) sim. There is only one account/number involved.

Nothing changes at all apart from the sim itself.

All of your account info - goodybag, credit, user name, mobile number etc remain the same on your new replacement sim.
