Needs advice

I am very new to web services so please bear with me.

I am currently subscribed to HostGator's hatchling/hosting plan, as well as Webflow's monthly plan. I wonder if I need the shared hatchling plan from HostGator at all to run my website. I have a small low-maintenance website, which is mainly for personal portfolios. So no web purchases or much interaction is needed at all.

I know the essentials are my domain renewals, and webflow subscription (since I design and update through their platform). So I wonder if I really need the hatchling plan.

I’ve been using a Reseller account to host my client's websites for many years ago.

I noticed in the last few years low performance and weakness in technical support services, so I intended to move to another provider just like "HostGator," the problem is I'm using currently Plesk "Direct Admin" but the intended new reseller using "cPanel," the question is could I move my reseller without interrupting my clients? "No change from client-side will be performed ex (FTP accounts, control panel credentials, MySQL databases, users, DNS configuration, webmail boxes, and messages)."

I would love your insights on where I should go. (Experienced)

Note: I called the HostGator support, and they will make a migration manually; they also assure me that it wouldn't be any interruption, but I'm also not sure.
