I just need to verify this before moving the host to the new cluster.

1. I created a new cluster under the same datacenter and I will enable HA to this new cluster. Should I have to enable HA first or do I have to move the host first before enabling HA?

 2. Moving the hosts to the new cluster - would it affect the active VMs? Is there a need to migrate all the VMs to the other hosts first before moving the host? and then move them back to the host, that is in the new cluster. And is it simple as drag-and-drop? or do I have to disconnect, remove and add the host to the new cluster?
