Actually there is a way to do this with a bit tinkering. The first way is
described in proxmox documentation. Read this chapter for details:
In my home setup I have two node cluster and one of the nodes is my main
server and the second one is for testing and very often not running. I do
not sync machines machines between the nodes and I am careful with the VM
IDs. In order to make it work I have raised the expected votes to 3 and
given 2 votes to the main server. With such configuration the main node
which is 24/7 will always start and run normally.

Expected votes: 3
Highest expected: 3
Total votes: 2

P.S. Keep in mind this is homelab. I wouldn't recommend this for anything
but testing and/or tinkering at home.
