Upgrade WordPress and plug-ins on four sites

I need WordPress upgraded on four sites, each of which are installed in their own WordPress instance. I would like a turnkey job on this -- apply the upgrades in a separate test area, apply any plug-in updates that are available, and upgrade my WPTouch Pro mobile theme running on three of the sites. Then, let me test and give the OK before making the changes to the live sites.

These are high-volume sites and I need someone with verifiable WordPress expertise (from previous completed projects) who can do this without causing problems. I want to be able to fully test each site before they are moved to production to make sure everything works. Once I've tested, the changes would then need to be applied to the live sites. I would expect everything to be backed up so that if something goes wrong, we can go back to the original versions.

The end result should be that all sites should be running current versions of WordPress, the plug-ins, and the WPTouch Pro theme.

Other tasks:

1. I would like to have the Lazy Widget Loader plug-in installed on the second and third sites below.

2. I need to have my Sitemeter hit counter and the Quantcast hit tracking code installed on the WPTouch Pro theme, assuming that's possible (so I can count page hits from mobile devices hitting that theme).

3. I have a problem with the RSS feed from [url removed, login to view] that needs fixed. It may fix itself with the WordPress upgrade. A script injection added/changed some of the files and I thought I fixed them all, but some extra harmless HTML tags at the end of some files apparently causes WordPress to think the RSS feeds are invalid, so I can't use the RSS widget to display those feeds.

Site information is below. In your bid, please describe how you will set up the separate are that will let me test each site before it goes live. Also, I don't know how big of a job this project is, so please bid to do quality work as described above and feel free to send a private message if you have any questions, concerns, or descriptions of your bid.
