Do experts agree I should have them upgrade our current equipment? What benefits can we expect, ie: improved security, stability, features? Goal being to get the remote office on our Cisco UC voice system and internal network access.

The ASA5510 has reached it's end of life as of March 2013 but support is still available until September 2018.

See:  http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/vpndevc/ps6032/ps6094/ps6120/eol_C51-727283.html

You are also quite out of date on the IOS.  I believe the current version for the 5510 is 9.1(4)

I would seriously consider upgrading according to the EOL recommendations from Cisco in the link above.

You can do one of two things:

1) convert your old code to 8.4 or later code, wipe the current config, upgrade the OS and apply the converted config

or

2) or take the upgrade path to 7.2, 8.0, 8.2, 8.3, 8.4 presuming that your box has enough memory
