Yes the process is reversable with flasher.
Yes you can switch back and forth from the XTerm but I believe that you need
root access.
Not sure if having it in host mode will conflict with a firmware upgrade but
if it does, you can easily switch it back.

I believe that you can run flasher with no args to get a list of things it
can do.
Search the mailing list archives for instructions on the exact /proc/ entry
to change to switch to host mode on the fly as I can't remember of the top
of my head ... but it was mentioned a few times on the list and I think
there is some info in the Maemo Wiki.

Hope this helps,
