I have a previous version of opencart running and want to experiment with a fresh install of the latest version and new themes, without damaging the existing instal.
a) with existing install in /store/
can I install latest version in /store2/ and with a different database.
being sure there will be no conflict?
b) Can I migrate paid extensions used in instal 1 over to install 2?
c) If I wish to go live with the new install ( and save previous install as a backup directory), can I simply rename the directories and all will still work?

Many Thanks

You may get problems logging in to both at the same time and using currencies/languages so you would be better to create a subdomain.

Depends on the license of the extension.

No, you'd need to change config.php and admin/config.php
