Do you guys repeat the vanilla guide to update MacOS on a working hackintosh?

I want to upgrade my hackintosh running Mojave 10.14.2 on Clover, but I want to keep my existing data - so I don't want a 'clean build'.

Catalina is no longer available in the app store so I guess I will have to try Big Sur, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it. My hardware is pretty standard - Intel i7-9700K and Radeon RX 5800.

I'm pretty sure I can't just auto-install from the app store and expect it to work so I guess I need to build the install from scratch again, right? But will that give me the option to 'update existing MacOS' rather than replace it?
