You can generate backups using DirectAdmin > Admin Backup / Transfer
Copy these backup files to VPS and restore the same using same Admin Backup / Transfer
Make sure that you chown admin.admin all the backups before restoring them on VPS.

Change the name server or name server IPs.

Can I set to transfer backups directly to sftp of the new server?

Yes, use SCP to transfer data from this server to VPS

Give following command at new VPS/server to pull data from old server:

scp -r -P 22 root@server-ip:/home/admin/admin_backups/* /home/admin/admin_backups/

-P 22 is the port. If you have custom port, please replace port 22 to the one that you have.
