Shut-off install - rookie question

Name:  photo-2.jpg

I am looking to install a new gas range, and a shutoff in the process. Is it as simple as removing the flex line and putting on the shutoff? The bottom piece does have the curb-stop lookin shutoff on the back. Does that help my process?

Will increasing the height be a problem? I also see that the thread tape is white. Itís not currently leaking, so do I apply 'It ainít broke'?

Oh, and please disregard the wallpaper - its hidden behind the stove

If that back piece near the wall is in fact a shutoff and it works then another shutoff is not necessary. Typically when you replace a range you also replace the flex tube. At this point if the TFE tape is not leaking leave it alone, but when putting on new fittings use the yellow stuff.
