When I started playing with proxmox, I set very simple passwords on the hosts I set up. I then joined them in a cluster using the same bad password across all hosts.
Now that I'm being a little more serious with this, I'd like to have better passwords but am not sure how to go about it.

Do I simply change the hosts passwords from the command line and leave things as they are or do I have to undo the cluster then join them again using the better and different passwords on each host?

You can change passwords every time, the password on cluster join is only for connecting to the other nodes once to join the cluster and can be changed every time

I wasn't sure if changing the password on the host one other host connected to join the cluster would break that.
Thank you, I'll change the passwords then.
