First of all, check 'NetBackup 7.x Upgrade Portal' and relevant docs.

And, go SORT and generate upgrade check list as well.

In addition to above excellent post, some more documentation:

Upgrade steps in Installation Guide

Also take note of image header migration to EMM database: NetBackup 7.5 Upgrade Guide  

Please take note of recommendation in Upgrade Portal (link above) to NOT start processes after upgrade but to first patch to 7.5.0.3 or 7.5.0.4.
