    Most sad mfg have cloning software available. Samsung, intel, WD, all have this option. If you have a sad without a cloning program, use acronis true image to clone the drive.

    No it is unconnected with the installation/transfer of the OS to an SSD
    The recovery partition is what loads the recovery means on the troubleshooting options etc
    The 100MB is the EFI partition and the partition lettered C is the OS etc
    and the OEM partition also titled recovery is the Original Equipment Manufacturer Dell Lenovo etc restore to factory condition partition

    What size if the SSD - capacity
    If you wish to move all that is on disk0 to the SSD than the SSD must be equal too or greater than the used space on the Disk0 hard drive
    I cannot see the free space on the partition lettered C on your image

    If the SSD is smaller than the used space then you cannot clone the hard drive to the SSD which is the best way to do the job
    See this
    https://www.disk-partition.com/windows-10/migrate-windows-10-to-ssd-0528.html

    AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard is a free OS migration tool that enables you to transfer Windows 10 to SSD

    any questions please ask

    My colleague as you can see likes Acronis
    I do not it is IMHO not as easy to use as the one I have attached

    However many people do use Acronis and the choice is of course yours
