Yep to all of that. It takes 24 - 48 hours to rid youself of the long 
term insulin. It will also take a while to get your basal rates 
right. You should be studying Pumping Insulin right now to get a good 
understanding of how it works. + or - a tenth of a unit/hr can move 
you a long way in a remarkably short time once your basals are 
squared away. You'll be amazed AND pleased.
