1- I suppose you're talking about the new snapshot feature. If so when you install a fresh ePO 5.1 you'll be asked if you want to recover from a previous installation. Doing this would connect to the existent ePO database and recover all configs from it.

2- Backup and restore ePO database is the same as any SQL database. check this: McAfee KnowledgeBase - How to back up and restore the ePO database using SQL Server Management Studi...

3- If client IP gets changed it will be refreshed once the client computers connects again to ePO. You don't need to do anything more than wait.

4- This may happen if you have VM's image, caused by the Agent GUID being the same in some computrs. If so you can deploy again McAfee Agent or delete the GUID so it will be created again at the next reboot
