1. dump and load only transfers the repository content, you would still have
to convert/copy the other setups like permissions or hooks.
2. If the target machine is sufficiently similar to the source machine, simply
copying the files that make up the repository will work. Be careful though
that you don't change permissions doing so in an inappropriate way, see the
book for further info. 'sufficiently similar' means in the case of BDB that
the used BDB libs are also of the same major and minor version and that the
computer is running the same OS on the same type of hardware. The FSFS
doesn't need such precautions, which is why it is favored as easier to use.
3. You can run a dump before and after migration and compare them to make sure
both are still the same.
