Which chords do I need on guitar?
If you can play all the chords in the key of C, then surely by useing a capo you can play all the chords needed for any key. Therefore, surely I don't need to learn any chords that arent in the C major key. For example, when would you need to play a C minor chord?
I mean play a C minor chord without a capo

If you can play the guitar then you can play “all the chords needed for any key” without a capo!
There's no advantage at all in what you suggest.
You'd need to play a Cm chord without a capo when you needed access to frets below the capo. What would be the advantage of using a capo anyway? If you were using your method and playing in C would you really want to use a capo if you needed a Cm chord?
Playing something in B would be a real challenge - would you really want a capo at the 11th fret? How would you handle a key change? I think you'd get tired of having to transpose the simplest of chord sequences into C so that you knew what chord shapes to play and where to put the capo.
You need to be able to play guitar to grasp the craziness of your idea.
