Default [Q] Currently on ME7/HD10.2, want to upgrade but I am overthinking everything, help

I know that this is answered somewhere, but I keep searching and finding multiple threads that say different things, and I'm confusing the hell out of myself, sorry for bothering you guys with it.

So I'm currently on ME7 with HD10.2. I was reading around and it seems like people have HD16 stable on SS, so I want to get myself up to 4.4.

Now first I found http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2726868 but I think I have to upgrade to NC2 first.

Then I found http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2579278. Can I use this to run to MJ7, then go to NC from there?

Then I found http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7#post51955929 and this one seemed like it was built to be fast and easy. But the first step mentions an MK2 'downgrade'. Obviously it wouldn't be a downgrade for me, but is it still okay for me to use the full steps from method 1 to get myself off of ME7?

I'm about to start by updating my SS to 3.72, but is it possible to do what I want on 3.71? Seems like the ROM slots can't be used on 3.72, and putting a ROM in the stock slot bothers me.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'm current;y on SS 3.65

Man, I was in the EXACT same boat as you. I was afraid to lose root, brick my phone, etc... I took the plunge and I just updated my phone to NC5 OTA. From there, I followed Surge's method to downgrade and upgrade to a pre-rooted NC5 stock rom. It took me 2 hours from start to finish and it was a nerve-racking experience (even after doing this type of stuff for over 5 years now). But I followed his method and also watched the Youtube videos as well. After the whole thing was over, I was so glad I did it, so much so, that I was confident enough to do it on my wife's phone, too. I am on HD 16.1 and she is on Echoe Rom v22. Good luck!

If you're in ME7, the first thing you need to do is to get upgraded to MK2.
I'd flash the no-wipe MK2 from this thread.

That'll avoid upgrading ME7 to MI1, MI1 to MJ7, then MJ7 to MK2.

Once you're on MK2, you can follow one of the upgrade threads to upgrade to NC5. Gigilie's method might work, getting you to MK2 at step 1, but it's probably better to get to MK2 first, then attempt the upgrade.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
