If I kill off the zoysia grass with 2 to 3 applications, should I dig it all up & seed it or can I use a special machine to seed on top of the dead grass? which is best?

It will be best to completely remove the zoysia, roots and all. You can rent a sod cutter to make the job easier. If you simply kill it off without removing the debris, the grass seeds won't be able to root deeply in the soil and the new grass will die back during hot, dry weather. I'd go the extra mile and completely remove the zoysia before broadcasting the grass seeds.
