I'm planning to acquire the Acer VX5 with the following specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-7300HQ 2.5 GHz (ate 3.5 GHz)
GPU:NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4GB GDDR5
RAM: 8 GB

For about 800-900EUR. Depends on the day of the purchase, since it wavers back and forth. If I'm lucky, i can acquire the same laptop but with the Intel I7-7300HQ CPU for 950EUR.
I plan on buying the laptop in a few months.

I mostly play LoL, CS GO, and Skyrim. I want to also play newer titles but i don't mind playing on low settings if that means getting a good fps rate. I also want to use the laptop to do music production and recording (nothing serious).

So my questions are:

1. Will the laptop support the games I mentioned with good frame rate?
2 Will the laptop support easily the recording and production on p.e Reaper with several plugins?
3. Is the laptop cool even with max load?
4. Is the maintenance of the laptop (dust cleaning and thermal paste application) easy in this laptop or is it better for me to take to a specialist?
5. Is there a laptop with better specs for what I need?

My budget is limited to about 950EUR.

For the budget it's fine, but that depends on the area. In the US you can get better quality and faster systems for $1,000.
For temps and access to parts inside you can do a web search for reviews and tear-downs if anyone did any for that model. Usually the cheaper laptops like Acer do not have a very easy way of opening compared to higher end and business class models, they tend to use clips and need to be take apart without cracking them vs screws and good bracing and mounting points.
