Upgrade Exchange 2007 to 2010 or if Possible to go straight to 2013 Need Help Thank You

Need Help Upgrade Exchange Server 2007 to 2010 then to 2013 Or if I could go from Exchange 2007 to 2013 that would be great if that is possible. I don't know if there is a way to coexist with  Exchange 2010 but I currently have an old Dell Poweredge 2950 and the last thing I have running on it is Exchange 2007. I have a Dell Poweredge R440 Server that has Server 2016 installed along with Server 2012 I was following this video here about the migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010 but I haven't followed it all the way through because for one I want to make sure it is correct and to I don't want to screw anything up. If someone could help me out are provide me with a website or some more details on how to get this accomplished I would be very grateful Thank you.

Agree with Works2011 you can export mailboxes to PST and import again.
But if you don't move mailboxes from one server to another you will have to reconfigure outlook for all users.

MAS  - Thank you so much for the detailed documents going over each and every article planning to do the migration this week starting at the close of business day Friday. I got mimecast configured and ready to go for a go between so there is no down time during the migration or at least as little as possible.

WORKS2011 - When you say extract users info to a pst what I have done along with the start backup procedure is I have a lab computer and I have install and let it download the mailbox then file import and and export it to a PST file.

Is there an easier way to backup and extract individual users accounts and email to a pst file like a PowerShell command? Thank you for all your help and providing me with so much info I'm thoroughly looking everything over to make sure this migration goes off without any issues sorry for the delay in getting back and I want to thank you 2 Mas and Works2011 for providing me lots of resources to accomplish this task thank you.

Sorry for getting back to you so late but I do have a few questions with exporting pst files. Do I need to do this on the server with exchange server 2007 are can i do this on a standalone PC with outlook 2007 installed with management tools. I read the articles but I'm a little confused, also these power shell commands that are being used are there any possibilities that these could cause an issue. I have an older exchange server 2007 that has limited resources and I have about 15 users average inbox is about 8-10gbs which is going to take a while to extract to a pst file. Trying to figure out what's the best way to accomplish this task Thank you

MAS- My apologizes for sounding stupid but I just have a couple questions to make sure I'm understanding everything correctly
Exchange 2007 management tools
Can I install it on a windows PC Windows 10,7 32bit - 64bit does it matter if it is 32bit or 64bit?

Can I install Exchange 2007 management tools on the new server?
Current OS is Windows Server 2012  as well as Windows server 2016?
I also have a spare windows server 2016 virtual machine I could install it on all versions are 64bit?

As long as the exchange 2007 mangement tools is 32bit I should be fine right and it should install on a 64bit pc or does the pc have to be 32bit Windows 7 - 10 or does it matter.

Sorry for so many questions and thank you so much for all your help.
