How would one easily migrate to ZFS from a software RAID 5? With very minimal extra space? Is the only solution to temp store data on some drives, build the array, and move every back to the new array? I do not have the overhead space to allow for such a method.

I'm sorry to say that this would likely be impossible. You should purchasing enough capacity to backup your data, then reinstall to an OS that supports zfs.

This was the answer I was prepared to hear.
