migrating of vm's across vcenters

I would like to migrate a number of Virtual Machines from one vsphere 5.5 environment to another seperate vsphere 6.5 environment.
Both environments have their own vcenter


Can I use ovftool to perform these migrations.

Any storage you can share between the different hosts?

Backup and restore?

Use SCP to copy the VM files?

Run vCenter Converter Standlone?

Lots of options…
