    It varies. You should wipe data (if coming from ANY other rom).

    you should find this link helpful: http://rootzwiki.com/forum/362-vzw-galaxy-nexus-development/

    When I went from ICS and JB and back I performed:
    wipe data factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    wipe dalvik cache
    format system
    format cache
    format data
    super wipe


    I personally did not loose pictures or music when I did this.

    Well if you aren't rooted you can not flash JB in the first place.

    Sure you can. Just as long as he's unlocked. Just fast boot a custom recovery and flash a pre-rooted JB ROM. Boom. Done.

    And once you re add your wallet account, all your money will be there.

    The JB camera is bundled with Gallery, it seems to make the transition between the two much more smooth and fast.

    That's ok. I've had so many replacement devices, the process is like second nature to me. Lol
