Void is very much based on freedom of choice. Such freedom can of course be 
somewhat intimidating at first, especially since you will need to learn how 
to do many things yourself instead of having them working out-of-the-box. 
On the other hand you will end up with a system that is exactly how you 
want it insead of trying to cater to the masses. It may take a bit of 
fiddling and looking things up online but I'm sure you can get things 
running the way you want.

Reusing your current home partition should be fine. I have been doing the 
same thing through several Linux iterations so far and never encountered 
any major problem. Just bear in mind that there are several config- and 
cache-files on your home partition that may contain custom settings from 
your old Linux system. That should not be a problem though since you can 
change any setting later and caches should be updated automatically after a 
while. It is only a little problematic if you want to keep using your old 
Linux as well and share the home partition between both systems. I am of 
the opinion that home directories need some weeding out from time to time 
anyway :)
