My opinion.

"End of Life Red Hat Linux and Fedora Core distributions."

It's a bad idea to stick with old distros. Your choice, but many users will be stressed and some will burst into flames over hardware support and more issues ...

I'd move up.

You would get the current OS on CDs and boot them up. I've seen such upgrade the OS.

Just asking. That seems a little obvious. Is this a new experience for you?

In short, you pop in the new CDs, and follow the prompts. If it offers an upgrade, you accept it.

Some users are looking for blow-by-blow graphic install steps or more. Right or wrong, this area can be simpler if you boot the CD and dive in.

May I reccommend?

With my past experience, SuSE has yet to fail me. The newest verison, 9.2 is wonderful. I've stuck with it for about 3 months now and have no plans of dropping it. It's well polished, easy to use, and looks great. It also has alot of functionality and is backed by the reputation of Novell, a world class corporation.
