Default Using TB from two devices

I've been using TB on my Droid Bionic. And I've had a factory reset or two in there, and had the need to restore from the SD card. I believe that I setup it up to use a dropbox also.

What I'm wondering is what happens when the N3 comes in. I know you should not restore ..everything.. since some is moto related, and system settings for a different version of android. If I make the assumption that that apps I want are compatible on the N3.

I would do what. Selectively restore the apps + data I want? or it is better to reinstall the app from Play, and then just restore the data for the app.

I've never used TB or TWRP to make a backup image of a device, but I was thinking once the N3 is rooted and unlocked, I would like to make a backup image of the whole device. Sorta the stock rom + my preferred apps+data before I start install/remove/install/remove all the new apps I will try. was never clear really how to do a full backup from twrp or how to save it on the PC or to restore it later if needed.

Best methods or tips on how to do some of this?
