As you have a spare chassis for this case, you have few method to minimize the service impact of this change.

For the redundancy part, it depends what is the role for the existing chassis. You may consider to use traditional HSRP as the gateway redundancy or build up VSS on both chassis as a single virtual switch (required enterprise license).
 
Anyway, it is not a minor change, I would suggest you to postpone the change and wait until the new Man... or get the professional service from your SI, pretty sure that you cannot handle for this change.

Are all your add-on cards supported by SUP7?

I think your boss is asking a bit too much here.  It's not something that can be just done and dusted in half an hour.

As gheist says, you need to know if your linecards in the existing chassis are supported by the new SUP7.  If not, you need new linecards.

You need to approach this in two stages.  Forget VSS - traditional HSRP is how you need to do it here.  The SUP6 won't do VSS anyway, nor will the SUP7 unless it's an -E variant.

You should get the new switch configured exactly as the old one, but configure different IP addresses (on the same subnet) on each VLAN interface (SVI).  You can then configure HSRP between them on each VLAN.  That would get you to the point where you can move connections from the old chassis to the new chassis and begin upgrading the old chassis.

Chassis supported, but no old linecards do. Really spend time with compatibility matrices before cutting the pipes.
On human side if one is fired and you are threatened with same it is best to find new job and go.
