I have my internal ssd, and external hdd back up drives. I bought a new tb ssd to put in place of my 500gb internal. Can I first clone my c drive to my external hdd and then after the installation of my new ssd clone it over to the new ssd from my external? I have that Mercium free cloning software. I just have never done anything like this and am trying to get as prepared as possible.

Seems a long way to do it.
Insert new SSD into computer and clone then remove old ssd, unless you do not have enough cables

Just clone it by connecting it to your system. If you do not have extra pw/data cables or an extra sata port, just use the ones for one of your other drives.
Most drive mfg have purpose designed cloning programs available for download.
