maybe this is a silly question. If someone was to take the babies off you, do the babies mate? Is that bad? I mean inbreeding?! lol

Some say it is an issue far far down the line, babies of babies of babies etc. Where a deviation from what is considered pure "wild" species could occur.

And yes they WILL definitely breed, it is up to you if you want the fry to survive, if you don't remove them nature takes it course and they are eaten by the larger fish very quickly.
60g system: 40g F1 Saulosi Breeding Colony (1M/10F), overflow into 20g planted tank/sump where the fry grow up ;)
55g F2 Saulosi mingle tank (25+M/25+F)
75g Quarantine tank

According to an online store, haplochromis and punamilia nyererei are 2 different fish? Im a little confused by the title here? Are these hybrids?

No. They are not two different species. Pundamilia nyererei is the correct name.

That site is confusing as well. Pundamilia nyererei were described in 1985 and there is no reason to call them Haplochromis (Pundamilia) nyererei. Pundamilia is not a sub-genus it is a valid genus so feel free to drop the old Haplochromis name altogether.

Nice video!
