Exchange 2016 CU 7 installation is normal like reinstalling exchange binaries, you can run the setup and readiness check and run the setup. Ensure you have proper backup before you proceed. Also if there is any customization on the OWA website, ensure you have backup for that too.

Prepare AD, Prepare Schema are not required, it is one time when you do the first time installation. If you already have Exchange 2016 running on your environment then there is no need. Moreover when you run the setup, the prerequisite analysis will throw if there is anything needs to be run on your environment.
