Focusing old manual lenses on R and RP

I own some nice old ('80s) Leica R lenses that I'd like to use with a full-frame sensor. They are strictly manual, no electronics at all. I know I'll need an adapter.

Questions:
1) Will there be any difference in focusing them on the R vs. the RP?
2) For shooting still photos, will there be any difference in using them on R vs. RP?
3) For shooting video, will there be any difference in using them on the R vs. RP?

Assumptions (from my research):
2) Focus guide feature of R will not work on these lenses.
3) Focus peaking will work on both the R and the RP.
4) Focus peaking will work the same way on both the R and the RP.
5) Both cameras offer focus peaking and magnification, but you can't use both focus peaking and magnification at the same time.

If you have any answers to my questions or corrections to my assumptions, I'd be grateful.
