you could always put a bunch of filter sponges into your system to build up a biological filter while you wait. That way, you can remove some LR and still have bacteria on other stuff.

I would fill the new display first leave it for a couple days... if everything is 0 it means it is still sterile. You should be able to move everything and the fish as the bacteria that supports that bio load will be the same, just there will be more surface area in the future for bacteria. (I would also add a bottle of bacteria when doing the change over)
