There's an entire manual devoted to upgrading ES.  See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ES/7.0.0/Install/Overview . To upgrade ES 5.x you will have to upgrade Splunk Enterprise as well.  See the compatibility matrix at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/VersionCompatibility/current/Matrix/CompatMatrix to see which version of Splunk you'll need.

Your splunk enterprise version should be on atleast 8.1 to upgrade to 7.0 ES app version. Splunk Enterprise version 7.0 is no longer supported as of October 23, 2019. Splunk Enterprise version 7.1 is no longer supported as of October 31, 2020.

If you have PS support, they will guide you on upgrade steps. We faced few critical issues during upgrade from 7.x to 8.x. please refer the "Known issues" listed by splunk which would help you in for a successful upgrade. Pls don't rush in, plan the upgrade well and do it. Otherwise, it may cause production issues.

Yes, it is possible to upgrade from 7.2.6 to 8.2.4, but that can be a breaking change.  All of your apps must be compatible with Python 3 to install Splunk 8.  Run the Upgrade Readiness app (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/5483/) to see if your apps are ready.  As with any upgrade, you'll want to read the Release Notes for the version you're installing as well as each intervening version to see if there are changes that affect your environment.  The Release Notes may call for special steps you must take to upgrade to that version

Likewise for Splunk ES.  Check the Release Notes and Upgrade Instructions for each version to see which steps must be performed.

Detailed steps are too extensive for this forum and are something for which Splunk often recommends engaging Professional Services.  PS can advise the best upgrade process for your environment.
