You are moving mailboxes not databases. Create database in exchange2013 move all together. It will get queued and finish based on server availability/performance

Nope. Not possible, as PF have there own replication mechanism

Going to Exchange 2013, you would use what is called "Batch Moves". This basically is a set of mailboxes set to move at the same time, but by default Exchange 2013 will only the following:

- 5 MRS (mailbox replication service) move threads per target (where you are moving it too) server
- 2 MRS threads per active database you are moving too (meaning if you are moving all to a single database, you can only have 2 moves going at the same time to that database. You then have an additional 3 move threads you can use for another mailbox database)


The other moves within the batch will actually be in the "pending" state until a new MRS thread is available. You can also edit these move settings on the Exchange 2010 CAS and the 2013 CAS / Mailbox ( http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2013/mobility-client-access/exchange-2013-local-mailbox-moves-part1.html )
