MQ Migration to new version

We are planning to upgrade from MQ 7.5.0.2 to MQ 8.0.0.6 on Solaris as side-by-side migration.
The draft plan is to install MQ 8.0.0.6 on a new filesystem. As per the migration guide, it says that the existing QMgr remain associated with the old version. can we recreate the new QMgrs for the new installed
version with same name? If yes, what will happens to the existing files (from the old installation )under the path /var/mqm/*? Will it get overwritten? Do we need to create the new queue manager with unique name for the new installation?
