You can raise a ticket with the support team, so that the FQDN mapped with the old serial number can be deleted first and then you can add it for the new device serial number.

As long as the name resolves to the IP of the firewall and the certificate is correct and trusted it works. This is standard stuff and will have no adverse effect on anything.

Yes, it is possible to change the firewall while keeping the same FortiDDNS name. However, this requires some manual configuration on the new firewall.
First, you need to create a new DDNS record on the new firewall with the same FortiDDNS name as the old firewall. Then, you need to update the VPN clients to use the new DDNS record.
Before you answer my question, have you tried it yourself?
