Question TPM and Secure Boot

I'm new here so I hope this is in the right place.

I have two separate bootable SSD drives running windows 10. One is for general use like email and surfing and the other is for Microsoft Flight sim X. I have an external port that is used for switching drives and the computer must be turned OFF before I switch the SSD drives. The question is: if I enable TPM and Secure Boot on one of the drives so I can upgrade to Windows 11, will I be able to switch to my other SSD drive if it is still running windows 10 after the BIOS is now set up for TPM and Secure boot?

My rig:
ASUS ROG Strix Z390-H Gaming Motherboard LGA1151
Intel Core i7-9700K Coffee Lake 8-Core 3.6 GHz (4.9 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151
EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0 Black Edition

You only have to have a TPM or TPM enabled on the board.
Actual use of the TPM is not required, only that it is able to be used.
Secure Boot does not have to be enabled, it only has to have the ability to be enabled in the bios.
That's all Windows 11 requires.
