i haven't seen any design guide for Hyperflex with NSX. Technically the solution should work as long as underlying UCS nodes are supported with respective vSphere versions. However i would recommend opening a Support case to ensure Springpath is supported with NSX platform without any corner cases.

Perfectly fine, I've built it for a few customers, it's actually quite recommended if you're using Cisco HCI and not VSAN to add NSX for uSeg.

Would you have a process or instruction list for moving the links to NSX?   

I'm wanting to get one prepped for PKS.

The HX Data Platform has dependency that the following networks use standard vSwitches.

  • vswitch-hx-inband-mgmt: Storage Controller Management Network
  • vswitch-hx-inband-mgmt: Management Network
  • vswitch-hx-storage-data: Storage Hypervisor Data Network
  • vswitch-hx-storage-data: Storage Controller Data Network

Technically only the vDS is supported for DFW. I would recommend adding the Hyperflex VMs that reside on the vSS to the DFW Exclusion list for safe measure.
