    Yes. You can always restore from an older backup even if you setup as new. The exact way you said. Plugging into iTunes and restoring a backup.

    And if you have an iCloud backup, you'd go to settings-general-reset-erase all contents and settings and you'd start with the setup wizard again.

    Yes, you can set it up as a new device and then restore from a previous backup later, if you choose to do so. If you do opt to restore from a backup later on, all you have to do is connect your iPhone to your computer, and select restore via iTunes, if you're going to be restoring from an iTunes backup. If it is from an iCloud backup, go to Settings->General->Reset and then select "Reset All Contents and Settings". That will bring you back to the point where you are given the option to restore from an iCloud backup.
