    You don't need one. You gat it by going to Settings>General>Software Update and clicking the download button for an OTA update or by connecting your iPhone to iTunes on your computer and checking for updates through iTunes, then downloading it to your iPhone.

    You can't install one jailbreak over another. You have to restore your iPhone and update to the latest iOS while connected to iTunes on your computer. This removes the jailbreak. Once on the latest iOS version, and if a jailbreak is available, you can jailbreak on the new iOS. This does require that you individually load all your jailbroken apps and tweaks onto your phone.

    Well that stinks.. Is there no way to
    Backup everything to restore? This will take hours with the way I have 5.1.1 configured

    The reason you do it one at a time is in case one of your jailbroken apps or tweaks is not compatible with the new iOS. This way you'll know right away which app or tweak is causing the problem.

    You can back up settings and jailbroken tweaks and such to restore after a firmware restore using Cydia apps like pkgbackup. They're pretty limited on what they can or can't backup.

    As for OTA updating, your APTickets will be unusable on the case that you'll be needing to use them after the window closes for 6.1 as the APTickets from OTA updates differ from those through iTunes

    Do I need to be in DFU mode to "restore iPhone" to 6.1 or just do it?

    If you're jailbroken at the moment, it's a possible requirement in my books for restoring. If you're on a clean device, you can use the Restore feature. You can use DFU mode as well for clean devices, that choice is up to you really

    As far as the Jailbreak goes... nothing. However, there's quite a few stock iOS improvements that 6.0+ adds over 5.1.1.
