Question need siding help

Our home currently has old aluminum siding over wood siding. We want to replace with vinyl siding. First, is it necessart to take off the wood siding as well as the aluminum? Could we use leveling board over the wood? Is tyvek necessary then if we use the leveling board? Finally, we are also redoing the old soffit and faschia. Any opinions on vinyl versus aluminum??? thanks!

Remove the aluminum siding.
You can use leveling board, if necessary.
Use Tyvek over the wood under the new vinyl siding.
Use aluminum for the soffits and fascia.
Good luck!
