One advantage of separate hats & rotors is you can move them outboard, so you don't have to disassemble the axles for future changes.

Yes. Absolutely. Not that there is necessarily a problem with the stock rear brakes BUT they definitely could be better and easier to service.

Installing the rotors on the outer side of the flange helps that. Watch your wheel stud lengths. Make sure that you are not loosing length.

It would be a good time to consider changing the studs as well.

Also if you go that route with the hats on the outside of the wheel flange, you are shimming out the wheel by that thickness so check you tire clearances to the fender flanges and verify that you are still ok.
