> I upload to Moodle the .htm file, not the .jqz file, right?
Either will work fine.
The html files are slightly lighter on the server, because the HotPot module doesn't have to do any work merging the data in the .jqz file with the html templates. On the other hand, if you use .jqz file you don't have to regenerate the html file yourself after you make changes to the jqz file.
If you don't envisage wanting to make many small changes to your quizzes in the future, I suggest you use the html files.

No, you don't need to remove it. The old "Finish()" function, which sends the results to your PHP script, is replaced with a new one that sends the results back to Moodle.
> upload groups of quizzes ... Is this a straightforward and obvious ... ?
It's straightforward and obvious once you know how to do it
The important settings, on the "Adding a new Hot Potatoes quiz" page, are:
- Name: get from quiz
- Summary: get from quiz
- File name:
EITHER the path to the folder containing the quizzes, e.g. hotpots/unit01
OR the path to the first quiz in a chain, e.g. hotpots/unit01/quiz01.html
- Add quiz chain: Yes
If you set "Show next quiz" to "No" then all the quizzes will be listed on the course page.
Overall, I think the HotPot module will do what you want without any modification to the quizzes. Once you get the hang of adding several HotPots at once, you should be able to add all your exercises quickly and easily.
all the best
