Is this the detachable cable version?

Yup
FYI you can buy a 65g sheet on ebay and replace it. Very easy to do. I have a different keyboard but replaced it with 65g. Very tactile. IMO, EC steams have the best feel for backspace and possibly spacebar.
Black and with something like 45-50gr switches, 35 just sounds wayyyyy too light. I already have issues with Cherry MX Reds.

Its a dif weight overall, i find light the reds and am super satisfied with the 35 Plum ones. They used to offer a black color in a specific model.

I think it was called the Chopin model.
If this came in black it would be awesome.
Side question: I've never modded a keyboard before or done any soldering or anything like that... but would it be easy, hard, or impossible, to put the insides of this into another keyboard body like a CoolerMaster QFR?

I'm not sure what the plate and pcb look like
exaxtly on this board, but I would guess that a case swap would be unlikely. Most keyboards have a case that is specifically moulded to take it's own plate/pcb which includes proper spacing and retention specific to that combo. It may be possible if you dremmel out standoffs and figure out a way of retaining the Niz pcb though you may be better off painting it's current case or making a custom one out of wood or acrylic.
Question. I'm clumsy as shit and spill small amounts of water or tea on my current mechanical keyboard every now and then(it survives). Will I have any major issues if I have an accident with an electrocapacitive or is it more or less the same? Will the rubber sheet protect the insides from liquid-caused damage?

i spilt beer on mine and now the c, v and n keys often stick down. tried iso and compressed air but it was a very thick beer. just my experience. it's an absolute dream to type on except for the beer.

i often do a full australian beer ceremony around my electronics.
Maybe you could get a slightly lower table for your tea. Relatable though
I'm really excepted for this drop since I've heard a lot of good things about the feel of the keyboard. I bought some Cherry MX compatible key caps from Massdrop to go with this keyboard. 1. are they compatible? 2. is there anything i should pay attention to when changing them? I haven't had an electro-capacitive keyboard before

None of them came with springs? That's how it determines the 35, 45, and 55g capacity. I receive mine tomorrow from this drop, I'll let you know what I figure out hands on.

Welp, I got my board in, and applied my springs! Gotta say I prefer the typing with them. I didn't receive springs for every cap though. I also had a shoddy right shift key and the stabilizers fell off and won't fit back on. On the bright side though, you'll only need the springs if you want to add a weight to your caps to prevent bottoming out
I'd be interested in this if it were 45g or 55g. At 35g, *every* key on it would likely be like the 'a' and ';' keys on the variable-pressure Topre RealForce 87U I recently tried and then returned — way too easy to accidentally press a pinky-finger home key.
this or the plum 84 RGB?
I like it, I want a tenkeyless keyboard, but I want it in black.
Does this come with a detachable cable?
doubledd
Yes, mine did. It's a clear sleeve over a metallic cable with a USB mini port.
