Can I just throw my 2 cents in?

Best take the latest version (or your version, if you have extensive core edits), put it on a PHP7 testserver, install all your stuff (or import a database backup) and see what errors pop up.

Only way to make sure.
Yes, it will be a lot of small and larger stuff possibly, but that's the only way there is.

Along that, if you can share whatever changes were necessary, the community would be thankful.

(I'm on PHP 5.5.9 atm on ubuntu 14.04. but will upgrade to the next LTS and then most likely php7 somewhere next year).

I can try that, and document what I find.

But now I need money to get another domain.  I can host it free where I am currently hosting as I am allowed to host multiple domains.

Just need to make sure they out that one on a server that runs php 7.

I would assume that you would do a fresh install of 1.1.2 and then do the core edited files one ata time, and see if all that works, then add the modules in one at a time too.

Then, once everything works, and I have the files that will be needed for 1.1.2 I can upgrade my existing site, change out the files and good to go.  No need to necessarily import the database, because what I would be needing is literally just a beta server.

No need to waste money.

I recommend installing http://virtualbox.org/ (free) and grabbing a suiting image you want at https://virtualboxes.org/images/

Alternatively, if you want more comfort, you can install a https://www.apachefriends.org/de/index.html (XAMPP) though they have now "MariaDB" ... because Oracly bought MySQL I think.
