Why do you need to keep the same DBID? Why not just use the DUPLICATE DATABASE command?  

Yes, rman will be aware of you incrementals as long as you use a backup controlfile that is recent enough to be aware of your incrementals, but I'd recommend just connecting to your catalog and using the duplicate command instead.
