yes direct: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/ise/3-1/upgrade_guide/HTML/b_upgrade_method_3_1.html#id_15402

No significant changes I am aware of other than licensing.  It is also usually recommended to do a Cisco Secure Client (AnyConnect) and compliance module upgrade in conjunction with an ISE upgrade.

Some good suggestions already given below, just keep in mind that once upgraded, your base license won’t be perpetual and will change to term based expiring end of October 2023, so keep that reoccurring cost in mind.
