Migrate from (DSM7) DS218+ to new DS920+?

Could you please advise on how to move from my existing DS218+ (2 x 4TB) to a brand new DS920+? The 218+ is running DSM 7, which I assume the 920+ won't be. Is it possible to upgrade the DS920+ to DSM 7 and then swap the drives from the DS218+ into slots 1&2? I assume that the DS920+ needs at least one blank drive in bay 1 to allow the DSM 7 update. Once I do that, can I eject it and use it elsewhere instead? I have ordered 2 x 2TB drives for the DS218+, as we plan to keep it as a remote backup for the new DS920+.

Building own NAS as fun project - Are there screws you recommend?

I have a PC I am replacing soon. I am not going to be able to get rid of the old PC, so I am thinking about using it as a NAS. I remember hearing about vibrations in a chassis due to having drives that spinup and that vibrations can be really bad for hard drives. Are there any vibration countermeasures like screws?

Saving lightroom photos on Synology without ill effects?

I'm editing (large) photos in Lightroom, and have just added a Synology NAS. I'm not interested in the NAS for processing or sharing photos, only for recovery of data. The NAS has 1gb ethernet, so (from the latest photo video) I wouldn't try to edit from the NAS, but would sync or backup the lightroom pictures and directories. I'm concerned that NAS "helpful" processing such as creation of thumbnails & AI processing could modifiy or add something in the lightroom folders that would cause problems with recovery when restoring the data. Would a variety of sync or of backup be better, and is there a way of being sure the NAS doesn't modify the data?
