OK, I have my new server

OK, I have my new server built, and will upgrade to EV9 on the old server.  How hard is it to migrate all of EV to my new server?

Upgrading from EV 7.5 to 9 - question re path and compatability

I have 7.5 and want to do an in-place upgrade to 8, then to 9, then move 9 to a 64bit platform.  I know that I have to sequentially upgrade but i have a few specific questions. 

a) is this upgrade approach correct and reasonable (understanding that there are pot intall tasks that must be done with each)

b) do i need to upgrade all the prerequisites for 8 before upgrading to 9, then upgrade prereqs again for 9 before moving to 9?

c)  are there "data migration" steps i must follow as i move up in EV versions, or just at the end when i reach 9 on 64bit?

Thanks in advance for your time and expertise!
