You're in luck, shape and skin are two entirely different things.  Shape is form, skin is strictly exterior appearance, neither change the result of wearing the other.  If you get a skin that is "no modify" no you cannot tweek it... if you get a skin that is "modifyable" yes you can tweek it.... that applies to absolutely everything, skins shapes clothes structures etal.

Make two copies of what you want to work on, that way if you mess up one you still have the original.

It's very likely that most skins will look ok with your shape.  The skin will not change the dimensions of your shape.  And there is no harm in trying on various skins or even other shapes.  Just make a couple backups of the one you have now.  A simple way to do that is to Edit Appearance and then Make Outfit.   Choose to copy everything.  You will see the boxes to check.  Give it a name like Default Look or some such thing.  Believe me, once you are comfortable with the fact that you can always get back to a default look that you like, playing with shapes and skins can be a blast
