Migrate apps & data from iPhone 4 (iOS 6) to iPhone 6+ (iOS 8)

I'm helping my kid to do this & I'm no iOS nor Apple product users.

Can someone provide me a step by step guide to migrate data (music, photo etc)
& apps from iPhone 4 to iPhone 6+  (without migrating the iOS version over ie
the iPhone 6+ should still be running iOS 8).

Calendars, appointments, emails (that are stored locally in the iPhone 4), reminders,
Wifi settings, email client settings/configurations, Whatsapp & SMS messages need
to be migrated over as well, ie everything except the iOS.

If there's anything that can't be migrated over, kindly indicate the item

If there are any 3rd party software that are better for this migration purpose
(ie better than iTunes), do indicate.   If it's iTunes, let me know the version.
I'm using Windows 7 on my laptop so the iTunes or 3rd party tool needs to run on Win 7
