Thanks a lot for the miniguide, i would expand it with the doom's comment though as some "global and 1 combat only switching" 2 section split or smth. but that's up to you:mhwgood:

You can also hot swap in battle. If you hold down the button to select/change target, you can also pick a character to change to. On xbox this is LB+Dpad. On pc I think it defaults to alt+number keys. Can also be done by pausing and hitting RB/LB on xbox. Q/E on pc. Pretty sure these only last till the end of battle.

@raikacchi fixed keyboard explanation. You need to pass cursor over character, then press F.

Correction to keyboard : right click to confirm. (right click anywhere blank in screen)
(F = confirm leader)
Thanks for the guidance TotemMX, was looking into this as well! :)
