Copying account question

cPanel Access Level
Root Administrator
I'm a novice sysadmin, and very new to cPanel. Thank you in advance and please forgive my ignorance. We have a client who wishes to:
clone to
rename account database and users.
With special instructions "Please be sure that the curent 'account' database and website aren't affected by this."

I am trying to find a way to accomplish this with little to no downtime, which I am not sure if its possible.

I found this tutorial, and many like it, and it seems fairly straight forward but I have never done this before. How much downtime should I expect. Or is there an easier way to do this?
