How can I query the existing setup to find out what orientation, page size, lines per page, font, etc has been set up, and then transfer this to the same printer on the new server?
Is this information stored in the printer configuration or is it more likely to be output from the software (ERP on Oracle database)?
Finally if I run jetadmin to look at the same printers on both servers is this likely to cause conflicts with printing?

I think this is the configuration file for printers. Try it out
If U cat this file U can see settings. But before making changes please keep a copy.

don't copy your printers manually; let sam do the task
/usr/sam/lbin/lpmgr -S -xsavedir=/var/sam/lp > /dev/null
copy the contents of /var/sam/lp over to your 11.0 box
/usr/sam/lbin/lpmgr -R -xsavedir=/var/sam/lp
Now you have an exact copy of yout spooler and printer config on your 11.0 box.

Like Rainer said it is really better to use sam
command "/usr/lbin/lpmgr" to save your printers
configuration. I do that for all hpux10.20 to
11.00 updates without any matters.
I think it's better to have only one printers
server, network-based printers have a queue
but with size limits...
For printing format printers interfaces and
softwares (ERP) can define them ... For example
if you use postscript generated by your
application format (letter, a4, colors...) are
define in the postscript file.... So have a
look to your documentation.
