Answer for 2 - First, plan to upgrade your CRM 2015 to D365 9.X, then plan to upgrade your Adxstudio to 7.26 by following the instruction given in Answer for 3.
Answer for 3 - I would recommend you to go with the highest version of Adxstudio in order to make it compatible with the D365 latest version. You can directly migrate Adxstudio 7.21 to 7.26 ver. Check this for Upgrade Instruction: https://community.adxstudio.com/products/adxstudio-portals/releases/adxstudio-portals-7/upgrade-instructions/
Answer for 4 - For all the CRM configuration/customization and portal configuration done in CRM, Take CRM DB backup. You can rollback the process anytime by Restoring the DB backup.
Answer for 5 - If you have done less customization then ideally effort should be less. Changes in Adxstudio visual studio solution will require more effort to do all the changes manually as there are a lot of features has been deprecated and enhanced in the new release of the Adxstudio portal.

Is there any CRM sdk dlls dependency? if yes latest crm dlls will support back ward comparability from the portal?
