That step you'll want to do as part of the new instance creation, before adding tablespaces and adding users.
5. Run the catalog.sql and catproc.sql in Server2
Export/Import can be fine, if you're patient, or don't have large tablespaces.
The #7 and #8 aren't needed since its a new instance and the system catalog is already at the 11g version.
Also may want to check out transportable tablespaces, it only takes a few moments to expdp the tablespace catalog info, plus time for copying the datafiles and impdp the tablespace metadata.
The only caveat for TTS is the system tablespace, with user procedures/functions/sequences and other items will not transport, so it will take an exp or expdp of the schema(s) to get code + sequences into the new database instance.
