DEVELOPER KEy is needed to create/change something in ABAP DEVelopment work bench
where as Access key is needed with respect to a particular program/object
Ask the basis people they will generate this key and give it to you
see for upgrade
While doing Upgrade You have to aware of all related program like BDC's , Screens related errors and all dictionary related problems.
Some function modules may become obsolete, and some screens will change
and some new fields will be added in the new versions etc.
Also take care of SPAU and SPDD tcodes.
You should be able to know about Unicode concept in sap.
also chk these 2 notes in service.sap.com
Technical Upgrade is only a version upgrade without any functionality changes.
The objects that are needed to be upgraded are:
Function Groups / Function Modules
Programs / Reports
SAP Repository Objects
SAP Data Dictionary Objects
Domains, Data Elements
Tables, Structures and Views
Module Pools, Sub Routine pools
SAP Scripts, Screens
