[Samba] samba 3.5 pdc migration

I currently have a samba 3.6 pdc. I would like to migrate that to a samba 4

I haven't been able to google out all the 'samba migration' hits that meet
my specific use case.  Sorry if there is something blindingly obvious on
this topic.

Is it possible to set up a samba 4 dc, and have it capture the sambe 3.6
pdc info?

Currently, samba uses tdbsam. (no ldap) It runs on an Centos 5.9 which I
would like to change to Ubuntu 12 Server LTS.  If there are any step by
step guides on doing this I would appreciate a pointer.

If it is not possible to automatically migrate samba 3 style pdc to samba 4
ad dc, is it possible to setup a samba 3 style backup domain controller
where I don't have ldap? I'm regretting that I didn't do ldap on this
system 3 years ago, but its a very small office.
