Hi and Welcome!

Its a Cholla. You should transplant it CAREFULLY. Smiling

Are you putting it into another pot? Or the ground? If in a pot, the pot its in is large enough - leaving it there is safer than transplanting to another pot. Approach this plant cautiously - the spines have little barbs that go in quite easily but don't come out again. Visualize a cactus covered in porcupine quills.

That depends upon whether you have ever attempted to cuddle with a cholla. Smiling
