If I set a flac to -15db replaygain is that just like lowering the digital volume -15db meaning I'm gonna lose resolution OR???

Thanks in advance!

Correct- when you play the file back with Replaygain enabled on the playback hardware or software, it will no longer be lossless. However, the difference will probably not be audible, and further, adding Replaygain only means adding metadata, and you can always play the file without replaygain enabled to hear it bit-perfect.
