Assuming that you’re using RDAdmin to do the DB restore, the schema conversion happens at this point.  If you’re doing the restore with a native MySQL tool —e.g. mysql(1) — then just run RDAdmin afterwards, and it will do the conversion then.

No.  Makes no difference.  The audio is just a bunch of files.  The schema stuff all relates to the database.
