Planning to buy Nubia Red Magic 3 this week. Is it true that CN ROM won't install google play and any other apks so ROOT access is needed to do it?

Root is not required , expect you have to flash custom recovery TWRP to flash GApps to use Google on your cn version

I see root is not required so on Step 10,

...
10. Flash the patched kernel to phone.
fastboot oem nubia_unlock NUBIA_NX629J
fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img
fastboot reboot
11. The phone is rooted now.

Note:
1. All data will be erased when unlock bootloader
2. After unlock, a warning will shown when phone boot.

I just need to flash the patched kernel to phone
and
I need to skip the code:

Code:
fastboot flash boot magisk_patched.img

to prevent root?

Root is difference than flashing customs recovery


U need to flash TWRP recovery
When you install TWRP you can:

,Root your device
Install GApps
You can flash any zip file


U just have to ignore rooting your phone if you don't want to root

The alone problem is playstore not cerified to do this you need root to make google play store certified by download module from magisk called "magiskHide Props Config" downlaod manually and install busybox then use terminal use command su to grant superuser after that write 'Props"
Choose number 1
Then choose f
Then zte
That's all

My bootloader is unlocked and I'm trying to flash the latest patched boot.img from the 1.12 package. It says it can't flash in a locked state. Not sure why it's doing that.

Thanks for the post by the way.
