Honestly, I'd probably provision the new hosts in a new cluster, then just shut down the VM and migrate to the new cluster.
But, your plan looks pretty good in theory. I don't like the idea of having mixed architecture in your cluster (and DRS will just not work, but in theory HA should still). Changing hostname/IP does not matter one bit.
vCenter may be a little different, in that you may have to login directly to the host running it in the old cluster, shutdown and remove it from inventory, and then browse the datastore on the new host and add it before powering on.
just for my understanding
vmotion wouldnt work in this instance right ? , since its a intel to amd migration .
are you using veeam or something similar to move them across old to new hosts ?
No vmotion won't work.
I have completed this, it is shared storage on a SAN so I just added the new hosts to the existing cluster, shutdown the VM's and then migrated them to the new host and started them back up and then removed the old hosts.
