    yes, installing lion will remove el capitan. i dont recommend going about this by yourself, because if you dont know what youre doing, then you will encounter problems. I did this same thing as well. I wanted to go from yosemite to lion because i couldnt stand yosemite. I did it myself and I encountered many problems. I almost had to have my hard drive replaced. so i went to the apple store and they did it for me. but yes, downgrading is possible but risky.

    Make sure you have a backup of everything on an external hard drive or usb.
    (I recommend external hard drives like My Passport which can hold up to almost one terabyte, which is more than enough space)

    I hope this was of some help to you :)
