chere must have settings in the registry, as it adds a 'bash here' menu
option in explorer when you right click on a directory.  You'd have to
run 'chere -i' on the new system.

Right, available for installation, you'd have to run the setup scripts.
I suppose running ssh-host-config wouldn't be a bad idea, not only would
it install the Windows sshd service on the new system, but it would
generate unique host keys, otherwise both the new and old systems would
have the same key.

Sounds like this is doable, but there may be a series of commands that
need to be run, depending on the original installation.
