Why are you re-creating the controlfile?
Are you simply relocating files to a different physical location?
If so, you can do so with the database in a mount state prior to
In step (ii) - why open the database, then shut it down and startup upgrade? Skip step #2.
Nowhere do you mention the parameter file or spfile and password file.
You also don't mention the listener service, or creating the OS
service used to start the instance.
It appears that you are overlooking quite a few details.
Please review the following doc:

10g Release 2 (10.2)
Part Number B14238-02
After you're done with the db word size change, you'll want to apply the 10.2.0.4 patchset and consider testing the latest quarterly critical patch update or patch set update.
