Converting a master-detail relationship into a regular lookup - impact with report types and report

Hi,
I am trying to convert a master-detail relationship into a regular lookup.  According to the on-line help (search for "What happens if I detach a Master-Detail Relationship?") I need to pay attention to report types and reports, among other things.

I think I need to create new custom report types "cloning/duplicating" the logic defined in the "master-detail" report types for those objects I want to convert the field relationship for.  I need also to "clone/duplicate" all defined reports (of the given type).  

My questions are:
1. How do I find all the report types "based" on the master-detail relationship I am about to modify?
2. Is there a way to easily "clone/duplicate" the above report types?
3. How do I find all the reports defined on the report types at point 1.
4. Is there a way to easily "clone/duplicate" the reports found above?
5. I have noticed that reports can be scheduled to run at configurable times.  Will I have to "recreate" those schedule for the newly duplicated reports?
6. Are there any other things I should be aware of?

Thanks a lot, I know I asked a lot of questions but I was not able to find the necessary documentation.
