Your English is a little bit rusty in some parts, but your steps seems to be right....

Old server is NS1...
New server is NS2...

Do you want that NS2 will become NS1 after migration or I misunderstood something?
Yes

Remember always to backup your start infrastructure first :-)
Will be do in thus weekend then will closed the thread if okay
