Upgrade D500 to D850?

hey guys! (And girls)

i have been starting to have thoughts about maybe upgrading my D500 to a D850.

im not sure i will be able to keep the 500 so i have som questions.

with a D850 in cropmode, do i get the same quality in picture, just ”precroped” i mean i still get the benefits of better lowlight capabilities?

with a D850 and lets say a f2.8 lens, if i use lets say a 2x TC with would make it a f5.6, is that a better solution than a straight f5.6? Like will it be a better quality picture since the D850 has better iso capabilites, all else equal?

for the D850 to get the 9fps i need a battery grip and the bigger battery yeah?

the reason im thinking about upgrading is that i do a bit of everything, sports, wildlife and travel/landscape photography and im comming to a place where i think a FX camera might be nice to have, but since im not sure ill be able to keep the d500, i dont want to loose to much of the capabilities when it comes to the sports and wildlife.

since i wont be able to buy new lenses, im a bit worried about loosing the ”reach” there of the questions about cropmode and TCs

as it is now i have

tamron 70-200 f2.8

tamron 150-600 G2

tamron 90 macro G2

and the loved Nikkor 17-55 DX lens (what would be the FX equivalent of this lens in terms of quality?)

thanks in advance for any help!
