Yes you can upgrade from 6.3 to 7.2, go over this link for requirements, config will not be erased, however there will be automatic conversion from 6.3 commands such as conduits statements etc.. convertion to 7.x code.. see changed and deprecated features section.

Yes, you should be able to use 802.1q , the syntax commands are different from that of 6.x code, in code 7.x above , you will use subinterfaces to split single physical port to several logical interface.

same license principle applies from 6.x. At least one unit must be UR , the other FO for active/standby, see license details
