Confused on OCI and Dyn Standard DNS

Based on FAQs and information location at:  (Section :Why is Dynamic (DDNS) not being offered in OCI?)

I am confused on exactly what I need to do and which service I need to change. 


  Dyn Standard DNS with my own custom .US domain w/ certs.

  EdgeRouter that i use to update which then updates dyndns and opendns.  

Based on the FAQ

For those that rely on updater clients that are built in to a device, Oracle cannot change those devices so they will continue to point to the legacy Dyn platforms for the Remote Access product.

Even though I can customize EdgeRouter interface what servers I send IP information to. 

It sounds like now I need to do the following steps:

1. Switch to DNS Dyn Pro

2. Select one of their provided domains for remote access.

3. I create a CNAME for my *.US domain to point to the remote access domain.

Is this correct?

Does this impact my certs that are registered for the *.us domain if there is a site redirect in between?
