If you want to do an in place upgrade, WorkGroup to Standard is a valid upgrade, so you can simply run the MSI for Standard.

yes, you can backup the databases and restore them on the new instance.
you would not want to try to restore the system databases, but instead either recreate or script out any logins, linked servers, certificates, and database master keys on the existing server, and run the scripts on the new one
similarly , any jobs in the msdb database need to be either recreated or scripted out as well.
