If you are asking whether Oracle support provided crap then you probably know the answer - unless you are lucky to get really good specialist than you will be strugling and in the end will be much better off checking your procedures yourself by looking at the docs, metalink, internet and whtever sources you have. This is especially true for your case - procedure review.Oh... and test as the most important but you seem to know that already. ;-)

Now to 32->64 bit conversion. Have a look at the Metalink Note 62290.1.
