Has anybody done this, an upgrade from 32 to 64 bits? Does it work?

Yes, it works.
Be care of version packages. Not always 64bits version is chosen.


Second question: does everything work in 64 bits? Like multimedia (video),
flash, scanner...

I remember some libraries without 64 bits version that claimed some
dependencies. They were fixed by installing "64bits version dependence +
suffix -32bit" package.

One such is xine: there is a 32 bit version for 64 bit arch.

It works fine but better performance is not perceived. Inside perhaps ...

I think that only heavy tools, like video converting may benefit, and then only if they use 64 bit data streams.
