I believe as you are still running a rc version of SMF you'll have to use the large upgrade package from their downloads page.  This will leave you with no mods installed any way.  Then once you've checked all is working you can install the latest version of TP 1.3

You'll also need to make sure any mods and themes you have are compatible with SMF 2.0.14  I would concentrate on getting SMF updated first, and then install mods after.

no, you are just updating/upgrading the files not restarting the database.

Do a full backup of everything just in case.  Switch to default theme, uninstall mods if poss.  Then do a large upgrade of SMF.

Install mods.  Go straight in with new version of TP 1,3

As you were running TP 1.0 beta 5 I'm not too surprised some of the blocks are having issues tbh. Some of your blocks containing your own code might need to be adapted to use $smcFunc, as this was introduced in TP 1.0 RC3 for compatibility with SMF2. 

It will pay you to turn off the blocks in turn until things come back to normal. then perhaps recreate the block that are giving you problems.
