I updated from EA3 to EA4 a few years ago.
It wasn't difficult and I had no issues.

As for a user friendly introduction.

EA allows you to make changes to Apache and PHP.
It allows you to add or take away different PHP versions, modules and security features.

However, personally, I feel that's about as friendly as it gets.
There are tons of different PHP modules to choose from, knowing exactly what each one does would take forever to learn.

I could only suggest to go with a standard build.
And If you have time to tweak it, do a bit of research and experiment before going live.

What works for some, might not work for others.

The hosting provider is irrelevant in this instance.

I'll order the steps including your points the way that I had them ordered previously:

  1. Backup server (all sites/dbs etc.)
  2. Upgrade the PHP version on the server
  3. Upgrade MySQL/MariaDB
  4. Update cPanel/WHM to v66
  5. Migrate from EA3->EA4
  6. Update cPanel/WHM to RELEASE
