How can I install hyprland when I have GNOME?

I’m interested in installing hyprland and trying it out, I currently have NixOS with GNOME.

I wanted to ask a few things;
how do I get started with it?
I added this to my config:

# Enable Hyprland
services.xserver.displayManager.gdm.wayland = true;

programs.hyprland = {
   enable = true;
   xwayland.enable = true;
   nvidiaPatches = true;

but after rebuilding and switching I did not see any difference.

And, will I be able to just switch between GNOME and Hyprland on login?

Thank you so much.
