This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

1 Answer

1, 2 & 3: See How do I install the latest version of GNOME 3? It answers your questions about settings and removal as well.

The Gnome3 install will conflict with some packages, such as Unity, but it will be handled by the package manager. Hence, system updates will work just fine.
