If you intro any new stock shortly after rehoming the rbp's it shouldn't effect your biofilter at all.

Yep, it depends on how long you wait in between adding more fish. If it's less than a week then the biofilter should be fine (but I'd test daily anyway to be sure) as long as it's kept wet and preferably has oxygen either from running them on the tank or putting an air stone in with it if you're going to put it in a bucket. More than that and the bacteria could start dying off. Or you could dose the tank with some pure ammonia to feed the bacteria until you get fish.

I don't plan on having any gap of time between rehomeing my rbp and getting new fish
