Hello :)

You would proceed directly to the transfer options in Web Host Manager. It's not necessary to create the account first.

Thank you.

Hello,

If it's the same account name then yes you should delete it from the new server first before transferring it from the old server.
WHM => Account Functions => Terminate an Account will help with that.

Hello :)

Normally there is a reference to a specific path after "program" in the warning message you referenced. Was that the full error that you noticed? Also, is the account functioning as expected? It looks like the restore completed successfully beyond the warning message you noticed.

Thank you.

during cpanel restoration do even the subdomains and their databases be automatically restored.
