    So, my iMac works fine. I use Time Machine backups and am running 10.7 Lion. So, would there be any advantage (speed boost) to my computer, or if I just shouldn't even bother.

    you really should not need too unless you see issues from just upgrading

    If you were to do a fresh install, you could just use migration assistant to get back the user from your time machine backups.

    I've heard someone recommend getting a fresh install, and then just putting the users folder back, and nothing else
