modding will have zero impact on what games you are able to play. modding your system will only let you boot backups of working games, it doesn't make your system region free.

modding your system is safe at the current time, playing backups on live makes things more risky. ultimately though, new games you buy in europe won't work on your current system unless they are region free games. so in effect, some new games will work while others don't. you'll have to search the web before buying new games to figure out what your system will boot and what it won't.

there is no way to make your system, or your games region free. you should be able to import games from the states and play them on live without an issue though.

unfortunately, importing games will be so expensive that it might be cheaper to buy a new 360 arcade pack in your new region and just swap the hdd back and forth between your two systems
