Good afternoon,

I have a question:
If I press the "VOL -" and "POWER" button, a menu appears with three options:
1.- Power OFF.
2.- START.
3.- Restart Bootloader

1 and 2 are clear, but ...

What is the use of 3?
What does?
Is it dangerous to use it?

All the best

the 3rd option's meaning is... well, in the name: restart your phone into the bootloader mode again. That menu is the bootloader, so selecting 3 will restart your phone back into it again

Wait, if you can start phone in bootloader mode, then we can play with fastboot and its backup methods?

    Well, maybe? Or actually not, cause the phone's bootloader is locked, and there's no way to unlock it at all (Nokia patched everything in order to prevent people from unlocking its phones' bootloaders)
