i) Is there any problems with the above set of instructions
I dont see any problems with that.

ii) the name of my server in (1) and the ns name in (2) does not have to be the same.... right???
Generally you can use also the hostanme as nameserver. But when your server business grows, you might want to have an dedicated nameserver later. and then ist easier if you have ns1.. ns2.. ns3.. server names that you can point to any server.

iii) Do I need to change anything or set anything else up on my server for this all to work as a fully working domain registration and hosting server.

Normally the primary and secondary nameserver shall not be on the same server. But for this scenario you need 2 servers and use the secondary DNS function in the ISPConfig DNS manager.
