I recently got a 3DS XL and downloaded some games on it, like Professor Layton. My old 3DS broke and is getting repaired, and once I get it back I want to perform a system transfer to my new XL. However, will the system transfer delete games that I already have installed on the XL or will they remain unaffected? Thanks.

It will get deleted but then you will have to redownload it. Though that for pre installed games. Not sure how it works if you bought stuff yourself.

But I will be able to redownload it for free right?

Yeah, the eShop purchases for both systems will be combined, but you'll have to redownload whatever is on the XL, so I wouldn't play any digital games on the XL just yet, as you'll probably have to start them from scratch again.
