Planned on buying a switch today for my sister and her boyfriend, is it possible to play ACNH both local and online simultaneously? As in two people locally and one online?

no but yes. it's not possible to invite people to your town both locally and online since you can only have your gates open to either local or online friends. but, what you can do is open your gates online & have both online and local players visit you online.

if paying for wifi connection is the problem then you won't be able to play with your sister and online friends at the same time until she has a wifi plan. :( my family ran into the same issue, so you should probably buy a family wifi plan and add your sister to it.

There are three types of multiplayer:

1. "Couch co-op", where multiple people are playing on the same Switch with one being the "leader"

2. "Local multiplayer" where multiple Switch consoles are communicating over local wireless

3. "Online multiplayer" where multiple Switch consoles are communicating over the Internet and everyone has an online subscription

You cannot combine any of these methods. When doing couch co-op, you cannot open your gate or travel out; when doing local or online, you cannot bring in a friend on the same console.

For all 3 of you to play, you'd all need a Switch console of your own, your own copies of the game, as well as the online membership.
