Take a backup of your database (full backup) along with running DBCC CHECKDB on the database.  AFterwards, detach your database and copy the files over to the other server.  Once you've copied them there attach them.

IF it is on the same server then you won't need to change any of that stuff, no.

Cool...I didn't realize that you were using replication or I'd have mentioned that.  Sorry about that.
