You might also take this opportunity to upgrade your firmware, if needed.

You don't even need to reconfigure, just pop the processor in and it'll
work. You could do a 'boot -r" just for the sake of completeness, but
it's not necessary.
As far as dual vs single, Dual will *always* help speed up the user
experience. With a system like Suns, especially using Solaris, you
will notice dramatic speed increases with a second processor. Suns
have amazing multi-proc ability.
