I need to move my masternode to another server.

Can I leave the 1000 DASH on the previous key and just set up a new server, then edit the masternode.conf file on the local computer with the IP address of the new server? (So I would be leaving the pubkey, txhash etc the same and add the pubkey to the dash.conf on the new server.)

Or is it mandatory to generate a new key, move the 1000 DASH to the new key when changing IP addresses and setting up a new Masternode?

Could somebody explain the best procedure and list the steps in the order that makes the most sense?

Thanks!

I think yes, but first wait until old masternode entry dropped from network (check it with masternodelist full your_address in console).

Yes you can.
Points:
1 stop the deamon and kill the vps
2 wait 70 min +/- (check if the node is not on the network as suggested above on your new vps) and issue the start command of the node with changed masternode.conf
