It just seems irresponsible given the embarrassment of riches I already have at my command

I "finished" Breath of the Wild a few months ago. Found all the shrines. I absolutely did not find all of the Korok seeds, I didn't even find a third of them. They're fun to find by accident, but hunting them all down would be madness.

And we've just learned from E3 that the sequel is "in development," as if that could be doubted. Maybe it was the specific language about it being a sequel to Breath of the Wild, and not just a new installment in the series. Maybe they've said the same in the past. I've done no research.

It was such an amazing game, I'll go back to it for ages.

The way people raved about this game is exciting and (obviously) makes me want to play it. A couple months ago I was traveling a lot and thought about maybe getting a Switch for airplane rides, then the travel stopped and it seemed less pressing. But still, this seems like one of those "definitely a reason to buy a console" games.

Personally I'm still getting over Red Dead Redemption 2, which I enjoyed so much and which had so much in it that most other games seem a little empty and facile by comparison. There's quite a stack of icons on my desktop taunting me (all I ever play is Satisfactory early access, though), so investing in a Switch for Breath of the Wild seems, on one hand, to be like force-feeding a person who's already letting food go bad in his fridge. On the other it seems like Breath of the Wild could very well be the kind of game that would absorb me post-Red-Dead, when so many other objectively great games (like God of War) have paled in comparison.

...

What does one do with a korok seed? Does one plant it, and grow a korok shrub?

One trades in a Korok seed to a...big, uh, Korok seed guy. And he gives you more inventory space.

Consider this option: if you can acquire for cheap a Wii U, Breath of the Wild is fine on that console. That was how I played it. Bought a used Wii U for $170, no regrets. Now that I have the Switch version of the game, I actually have a very uncommon opinion that the Wii U version is better. It probably runs 10% worse (who cares right?) but the key difference is that (just my opinion coming here) the Wii U pro controller is better than the Switch pro controller. The Wii U one's analog stick placement makes doing "the claw" (look it up if you don't know what that means) easy. Doing the claw on the Switch controller is way harder. And BotW is a good claw game.
