Are you planning on using the same space you're currently occupying with your ufs fs or have you a brand-new pool you can copy stuff to?
Regardless, if you're planning on using the same disk (space), then back-up, test restore, trash your old storage and create a zfs pool and whatever file systems you want and restore. If you have new disks, create your pools, copy data across however you prefer and remount.

Precaution? Always ensure you have good backups and don't trash the wrong disks.
