If I pay (using $ or points) to upgrade my seat on a delta flight to first class, will I get more MQMs? (Looks like I will end up being ~100 MQMs shy of gold….)

Delta rolls over all MQM next year. So really doesn’t matter.

The MQDs do not, so I would be starting from square one on that front

You get more MQMs (a multiplier) in first class. So probably but will depend on the flight.
