Howto Request: setting up a remote MySQL server

I was considering setting up our cpanel servers to use remote mysql host. Currently the servers are fully loaded with sites using mysql on the local host. My questions are:

1. Can you migrate a localhost setup?
2. I was considering forwarding localhost mysql port onto the remote host in addition so customers sites don't break.
3. Do you need cpanel on the remote server?
4. Can 2 or more web servers use the same mysql server?
5. If so what happens with eximstats databases etc?
6. Are the databases still backed up with the cpbackup script?
7. Whats the best procedure for moving the databases over?
8. Anything else to know?

Thanks in advance to anyone who answer these?
