How to migrate millions of records from legacy to salesforce?

We have a project, where in I have migrate millions of records to salesforce. I think they are going to give a data base connection or excel sheet .. and ask us to migrate ?
 
I have to create Leads, Accounts, Opps, Cases, contacts in Salesforce.

Before Migration
1. What are the things I need to take care in Salesfroce ?
2. What are the things I need to take care in Source System ?
3. I can't have record owner same for all  ? it will cause issues in salesforce ... how to change it ? 
4. Can I change date and time stamps of the records loaded into salesforce ?
5. How to take care of the relationships 

Migration
1. What is the best time to do the migration into PROD. Org ?
2. How to test in Sandbox to make sure it'sok.

After Migration
3. Any issue with the size or processing times after migration into salesforce ?
