Updating all region servers configuration to reflect the new master address and restarting
the cluster will do it. It's a matter of minutes. We tested this and I can confirm it works.

The Namenode is also a SPOF.

On keeping a separate cluster for failover, until we add higher
availability, it depends on how much uptime you need to provide I guess. I
personally never saw a machine hosting a Master failing, so I'm not sure on
how clean it can be regards the META, but I think that just closing your
region servers, changing the config for the master then restart the cluster
with a new master would be nearly enough provided that the Namenode was
hosted on another machine. Maybe Jim or Stack can confirm?
