1) default values like on 32bit apply, be aware tho that you can rise the max raidsize for S-ATA drives up to 20 now
2) qtree snapmirror, snapvault or ndmpcopy
3) same as 2), there is a downtime involed tho, there is NO way to do it nondisruptive

qtree snapmirror can be updated several times as every snapmirror transfer can. and you can deceide when to update & break it.
ndmpcopy only allowes to be updated for 3 times (level 0/1/2 copy) thus cannot be that easily updated several times and it blocks the console during transfer, not allowing you to control the data flow etc.
I prefer qtree snapmirror BUT you can only transfer qtree & non-qtree data into a qtree eg:
filer1:/vol/data/dataqtree1 -> filer2:/vol/data/dataqtree1 for qtree to qtree data
filer1:/vol/data/- -> filer2:/vol/data/dataqtree2 for non-qtree to qtree data
filer1:/vol/data/- -> filer2:/vol/data/- will NOT work
