  Regular upgrades should be part of network policy.  If you leave
upgrades for years, then the upgrade process will be complex,
error-prone, fragile, and hard to reproduce.

  You can upgrade in stages.  Install the new server, and test it.  Make
ONE router use it.  Then another...

  I have no idea.  I don't bother remembering which version had what
functionality added.

  In recent versions of the server, this is easy.  The post-proxy
section does this.  Unlang makes it easy.
