I have an Ethernet switch and will be connecting it to one of the LAN ports on the XR500. This switch is a gigabit switch which holds roughly 4/5 devices. 

 

When looking at the device manager on the XR500, will it detect that a switch it being used and display all the devices individually or will it simply be one connection as there are some devices I will want to manage more personally.

Depends if your switch is a managed switch or NON managed. Non managed switches will not be seen by any router as they do not report an IP address. These are recommended for ease of use and quick connections.

Good choice it should help you with Ethernet stability, since you would offload switching function to another device.
