On my new phone I will put up to date TWRP which differs from one on my old phone, which is 2.6.3.4. The image which I plan to flash has boot and recovery partition included. Would that be a problem because of different version of TWRP on my two phones?

EFS is easy to set with TWR. Even if the original has it you can decide not to copy it on the other. As a rule Twr don't copy EFS and I've had to set it just to copy that when I've wanted it for back up
