I know egg rng manipulation is a thing but I was wondering if it is in the new game. Basically, I’m wondering if accidentally saying no to an egg would make me restart the number of eggs I need to get the shiny.

An egg's characteristics in SWSH are determined when the egg is collected, likely based on a combination of the initial seed and the frame you click "yes" on. There's no egg seed for advance determination of eggs like there was in gen 7, so there's no set number of eggs you need to collect to get a shiny, and rejecting an egg has no practical effect on future eggs.
