We figure to best way to update everything right now would be to create a new Droplet from scratch, set it up, migrate the files there, test everything out and when ready - “somehow” switch the current Droplet with the new one.
Here’s the idea we have so far and I’d like to know if this is doable or not:
Since we already have everything we need in our account - could we just go to => Networking > Domains and repoint the IPs from the old Droplet to the new one? Would this work? Would this need time to propagate or would it be immediate? I’m guessing we’d need to rekey the SSL certificates after we’re done?

As I can see you’ve got it 90% figured out, great plan by the way!
Here is how I’ll do it as I see it as the easiest. It’s mostly the same as your plan but with small different details.
That’s it, your application/s would be working from the new droplet now without a problem.
