I'm looking to swap from a 2.5 inch SSD to a pcie 4.0 NVMe. Would it be a straight switch or do I need a specific NVMe or kexts for compatability in Catalina

Should be a straight switch.

Will you be Cloning the SSD to the NVME, or fresh install.

Should work just fine, assuming you can see the NVME drive in the Bios and can select it as the first drive/boot option.
