Default [Q] Am I cloning my phone properly?

I am ready to switch from my 'old' xt907 to my 'new' xt907. both are on stock KK 183.46.10, rooted, unlocked, with TWRP 2710.

to have an exact carbon copy i figure i will need to :
1) copy my OS with all my hacks, exploits, tweaks, etc
2) copy all my applications with their appdata etc

to accomplish (1) i have used TWRP to create a backup of all 4 partitions.
is this enough? all i have to do is flash/recover it on the new phone?

to accomplish (2) will Titanium Backup do the job? can this even work or am i dreaming?
will i be able to also backup my Xposed framework apps?
and then what? i just copy the backups to the TiBu folder on the new phone and restore?

TIA

Default follow-up

how should i save my apps/appdata? do i
1) backup in TiBu and then create the system backup in TWRP and use that an i'm done? or
2) backup in TiBu and take those backup files and copy them to TiBu on the new device after it is restored with TWRP, then restore the app data with TiBu?

If you have twrp on both all I did was make a twrp back up to external SD then copy whatever I wanted from internal storage from device A.... Then restored the back up on device B... Your app data and all will be restored
