Replacing SSL Certificate for Single Sign on in Office 365 on Windows Server 2012

Hello,
   Our SSL certificate for Our federated services is expiring. We are no longer using the company whom we used when this was first setup, so we cannot renew the certificate but are going to be putting in a new one. I have found this article on the initial configuration:

http://blogs.technet.com/b/canitpro/archive/2013/06/13/step-by-step-setting-up-ad-fs-and-enabling-single-sign-on-to-office-365.aspx

However, I still have some questions, since this article is about initial setup, not replacing the cert:
1) First, is this article correct?
2) Second, do we need to undo the federation with MS  365 before doing this since it is a brand new cert from GoDaddy?
3) Is the process of getting the CSR done on the Proxy or the FS itself?

1) Server 2012 (i.e. AD FS 2.1) or Server 2012 R2 (i.e. AD FS 3.0)? Also, the article is for setting up AD FS, not replacing the certificate. Here are articles for replacing:

2.0/2.1: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/2554.ad-fs-2-0-how-to-replace-the-ssl-service-communications-token-signing-and-token-decrypting-certificates.aspx
3.0: http://blogs.technet.com/b/tune_in_to_windows_intune/archive/2013/11/13/replace-certificates-on-adfs-3-0.aspx

2) No, just update it
3) Doesnt matter, you can just import the new certificate regardless of where you renewed it from

Ok. When I spoke with GoDaddy they said I needed to upload the CSR. Where do I get that from?

Ok. So to be thorough I am going to list out the steps briefly:
1) Generate the Certificate Request (On the ADFS or Proxy) and then upload it to GoDaddy.
2) Import the Certificate onto the ADFS 2.1 server as described in the first part of the article.
3) Check for Auto Certificate Rollover, and then we are done

So, two more questions:
1) Where do I find the URL in the CURRENT certificate
2) If Auto Certificate Rollover is not enabled, how do I enable it?

1) What URL are you referring to? The domain name should be in the subject if that's what you mean

2) it's the last link in the article: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1424.ad-fs-2-0-how-to-enable-and-immediately-use-autocertificaterollover.aspx
