New iMac with Sierra OS X 10.12.6 and old pics from my older iMac

My iMac was 12 yrs old with an old iPhoto version.  It has died and I had to have a professional computer data recovery business extract my old photos.  When I click on the folder of pics I want to move over to my new computer( from a Lacie external HD), I get a screen saying my library version is too old and I need to upgrade using the iPhoto upgrading tool.

My question is, when I upgrade this version so I can view the pics, can they be viewed in photos version 2.0 (3161.4.140) that came with this computer. or can I run iPhotos and photos at the same time on this computer.  Also does downloading this library upgrading tool for iPhotos screw up the photos program already installed in this newer iMac ?  I hope I am being clear.  Thanks for any guidance.
