Home Buffer Glitch (typically used to loot chests without fighting bosses)
The Home Buffer Glitch allows the player to bypass trigger areas that usually make the player walk back. This is usually sign posts the character walks into and says "I shouldn't be here right now" and turns back or in dungeons when a boss prompt pops up: "The sense of danger is overwhelming. Are you sure you wish to proceed?"
In the bottom case, hover over "Perhaps not." Then tap it and immediately tap the Switch's Home button. When you're in the Home screen, hold the analog stick in the direction toward the boss trigger and reenter the game (so if you were moving Up going into the question, hold Up when reentering the game). When you reenter the game while holding the direction, immediately tap the Home button again. Hold the direction again and reenter the game.
It may take a few tries, but if done properly, the character will walk a few steps past the boss trigger zone, allowing the player to loot boss chests without fighting them. (If you're not getting it, you can even spam the Home Button going into the trigger to make it easier.)
Similarly, this can be done at sign posts right as the player starts to walk back. The area beyond such zones is not usually loaded though, so it cannot be used to skip chapters. However, there is one dungeon, the Lorn Cathedral, that can be accessed in this manner as well as some NPCs that can be reached, like the guards in Noblecourt.
This glitch can also be done on the PC version by messing with the graphics. (You can either reset your drivers with Windows Key+Ctrl+Shift+B or if in Fullscreen Mode, Alt-Tab. Either of these two methods produces a similar effect to hitting the Home Button on Switch and can also be made easier on PC with a key binding that activates all those keys for you at once. It might vary depending on your OS however.)

At Journey's End (Spoilers)
Please note that there'll be spoilers that may want to avoid. This little guide will help those who have difficulties on achieving this content. Read this at your own criteria.
After beating all Chapter 4 bosses, there's one more task you can perform to reach endgame content, and it's the final sidequest known as "At Journey's End". Some need to be completed first, however (you can check them below).
As soon as you have finished "Alphas and Impresario's Request" and spoken to the Impresario again after finishing the questline, a fast travel spot on the map will appear (near Everhold), allowing you the access to Ruins of Hornburg and its final dungeon, Gate of Finis. Before stepping in, note that it's important to level up your unused characters too since for the first time you'll be using both parties for the final stage. A well set strategy is recommended as well.

Tressa is required for this, Cyrus if you feel lazy and don't want Tressa to learn Evasive Maneuvers. Her Eye for Money skill allows you to obtain money based on the amount of steps taken and the danger level of the area you are going into. The higher the danger level, the greater the money one can get when you leave it. Undertow Cave is a good area to try this with at early game to build up money as it is relatively close to Rippletide and the danger level is low between the caves and the town, as well as the caves having a nice wide area to run in circles at close to the entrance.
Other than that, go to any town that is connected to a level 45 danger area (Marsalim, Riverford, Northreach, Whispermill, Orewell, Everhold, Grandport, or Duskbarrow: Marsalim works best because of how open the area is near the town entrance). This is a bit safer as you will be able to save the game directly and rest at an Inn, compared to relying on the autosave function. There do like in the first mentioned method and run about with Evasive Maneuvers equipped on a character with Tressa in the party.
