Conventioal vs. Legacy vs. DCC ???????

Hi!  I am a brand new member to OGRForum.  I have and love my O gauge trains going back to the 1960's (but also had bought trains in the 90's that have unused  "Loco-sound" and "Proto-sound 2.0", and "DCC freight yards proto effects").     I am retired, 68, and have some computer knowledge, but am no whiz.   I haven't used the trains in over 25 years.  Took out all my trains from the 3 basement closets and now have two 4x8 layouts. I think I understand DC (my old trains) vs. DCS (all the new stuff)...   MY problems--

1)  Not sure I fully understand the terms Conventional (the old stuff?) vs Legacy?

2)  I am trying to understand how to run DCS trains on my lionel 3 track...

3) Can DCS stuff run on the Lionel Legacy system?  (I'm not interested in MTH systems, as Trainworld told me that MTH is folding up in the near future).   

4) Should I have one train layout for my old trains, and a separate layout to acquire a DCC system for using the Proto-sound 2.0 and Loco-sound trains, and for buying new DCS trains?  (Interested in Digitrax and ESU or NCE).

GREATLY APPRECIATE SOME ADVICE.  THANK YOU.
