Is there a way to upgrade from 10d to 2010? How about all the configuration, backup schedules? Can they be migrated as well? Any thing to take note?

i just recently upgraded to 2010 and all settings and scheduled jobs remain, you will have to redeploy the agents to the servers you backup of course, which is pretty simple, but first after the upgrade run liveupdate and update to SP1 reboot and start your redeployment of the agents to the servers you backup. all settings remain after SP1 update is applied as well.

Now I realized that I am using version 11d, can I upgrade directly to 2010?

yes you can, same process which is a straight-through upgrade and all settings remain except you will need to re-deploy the agents to your servers in order for them to communicate with the server you are upgrading to 2010.
