In the last question, Select the Network Adaptors Tab in the vSwitch and highlight the NIC and Click Edit, select the Network Speed for the NIC.

Ensure that your Physical Network switch can run at 1000MBps.

Sometimes it's also worth recommending and setting the Negiioating value to Auto, and not fixed 1000MBps.

There will be a moments outage as the Server re-connects to the switch at 1000MBps.

If you are running production machines in service, there may be a slight outage of a few seconds.

But no, you do not need to shutdown the VMs.
