You can answer your questions by obtaining a copy of

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Upgrade Advisor

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

The answer is it depends. You need to have a test environment and test, test, test. If you don't have a test environment for the upgrade then you MUST get one. Look into and use the Upgrade advisor:
