vbSEO & vbulletin mod questions

#1
I'm considering migrating my vbulletin 4.2.1/vbseo forum to XenForo but have a few questions I hope I could get answers to:

1) Is there documented instructions on vbseo re-writes that can be done to minimise any loss of Google traffic, SEO, etc? I've searched the forum and checked out the Manual and Brogan's FAQ and found no mention of it. Has anyone here done a vbulletin 4.x with vbseo migration and have any feedback on how it went?

2) On the subject of vbseo, any way to map likes from it to xenforo?

2) Is there any kind of mapping of vbulletin mods to xenforo mods? I'm running the following vbulletin mods and was hoping to get something similar:

ibProArcade for vBulletin
Multiple Login Detector
Signatures once per thread page
vBSEO

Redirection scripts are available here: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/redirection-scripts.2/

The official importer does not import likes but one of the third party importers may.
Edit: There is this add-on: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/vbseo-likes-importer.2021/

All of the resources are located here: Resources
I don't believe there is an arcade add-on, there may be one for multiple login and single signature per page.
There is no requirement for a vBSEO similar add-on so one doesn't exist.

Thanks Brogan, so just to 100% confirm, there's no possibility of converting vbSEO URLs to XenForo as there's nothing in that Resources section?

I'm not familiar with vB at all, but redirection is always possible, even if it has to be a custom solution.

vbseo links can be re-written as long as they have some form of unique id in the url.

In that case, it won't be possible to rewrite forums and members as an ID is required to map old to new.

Oh yes, that would be fine.
You would just have to create 30 lines in the .htaccess file.

For members though, it's obviously not practical.
