Please look at the 8.5.4 release notes on page 24.  It is recommended that you upgrade to 8.2.9 first though and then to 8.5.4.  Please go to the NIOS archives in the support page to get 8.2.9.  Yes, you can distribute to both devices after uploading.  You download the BIN files to upgrade.  Yes, there will be a disruption in service.  As with any network device, it is best to schedule an outage before perfoming the upgrade steps.
