An upgrade should take care of those changes. I'll answer your questions
* X gets installed.
* Z will get installed. If Y is deprecated, or replaced by Z, then it is
removed. There may be cases where the upgrade may not realize this. For
example, it may not realize that OpenOffice 2.0 is supposed to replace
OpenOffice 1. But I understand that "aptitude" can deal with these issues.
* Your configuration and data is preserved, including your background
Hope that helps.
