As far as I understand it, if you were to upgrade the OS on the machine which those files and settings are currently stored, they would stay in tact after the upgrade.
If you needed to transfer them to another machine, then you also get that option when turning on your new Mac for the first time.

You can go to:
user/Library/Safari
and copy the "bookmarks.plst" file to somewhere like a flash drive or a CD or something. Then after you upgrade, all you need to do is go back to the same location and replace the new bookmarks file with the one you saved.
