Switching from syncing to manually manage will erase the current content.

All of the content on the iPhone should already be in iTunes on the computer.
As such, wiping the iPhone should result in no lost media.

Unless there has been a recent change that has escaped me an iPhone can only be manually managed with a single library so there is no benefit over syncing with selected playlists.
