As IANADD, can't help you with everything other than this: I would avoid
creating a new key. Creating a new userid on the old key avoids most
problems. You can optionally revoke the old userid, of course. In any
case: since it's the same key, people are not required to download your
new key, but can continue to use the old one - that it is not updated
with the new userid is not too bad.

Spreading the updated key is of course still necessary, but is easier
IMHO than distributing a new key.
