My suggestion to you is that Carbon Copy Cloner may not be the way to do this, and if you are not familiar with Terminal you could cause irreparable damage outside of a full recovery to correct this damage.
The clean instance of Mac OS that came with the Mini should be left on the machine or restored through recovery, then migration assistant from a time machine backup on the Pro would provide the account data and applications without the conflicting files.
Once the system is configured you should you CCC if you want to make an image of the Mini itself, not force the MBP image onto an Mini.
Somehow I have gotten duplicate national holidays in my iphone and ipad. How do I delete one of each so I only have 1 holiday on a specific date?

The Calendar app on the iPad is one of the apps that came with the iPad. So it was originally on your first Home page. The icon is white with the day in red and the date in large black numbers inside the white box.
If you can't find it, swipe down from the middle of your Home page and a search bar will appear at the top, type Calendar, and it will appear in the list, touch it to open it.
When Calendar opens you will see the word "Calendars" in red at the bottom of the screen in the middle. Touch this. A pop-up will appear with a list of calendars. Touch one of the holiday ones to deselect it - the checkmark will go away. Touch the red Done in the upper right corner of the pop-up screen

As an example, below are the files related to two movie files — which should I transfer to my 5TB external drive, and which am I safe in deleting? (to help distinguish, let's use the name "Q" for icons with that letter and "Grey" for those with black and grey stripes)
Based on the information given, it is impossible to answer your question in a simple manner.
Generally speaking, a "generic icon" (one with the letter "Q" on it) merely indicates that the data in the file is not "natively" compatible with QTX or does not contain "media" data while those having a picture icon are "normally" QTX/QL compatible. It does not indicate the quality of the content, its source or intended use by you—all of which may be factors in deciding which files to keep and which to delete.
On the other hand, It does appear that most of your "generic icon" files are extremely small in size which could indicate they are reference, single-frame, corrupted or incompatible low-quality versions of your other files having the same filename. (I.e., you may want to ensure the files are playable or required for the playback of other media files before getting rid of them.)
As to larger files having the same filename and same storage size, you may have to compare the individual copies to ensure they play the same before deleting those you determine to be duplicate copies. I.e., MOV files can be edited (e.g. trimmed) and the new start and/or end playback points stored internally within the file so that they externally appear to be the same size but in actuality play differently in QT-based media players than they do in non-QT media players. In short, the only way to really be sure which of these files to keep and which to delete is to physically go through the files and check them individually.

iTunes backups do not include photos. You have to import the photos to your computer using the cable.
See the the section titled Import to Your PC or to your Mac.
You have to import the music from the CD into iTunes and then sync the songs to your phone.
After you import the music, sync it using iTunes.

Singlemizer says 10.9 & apps are normally 'forward compatible' from that OS so I assume it does work but have not tried it.
Look in the Mac App store - if the app does not appear it is not supported on your OS. The App Store also lists the supported spec in the sidebar. NOTE: the store version is not free so grab it from their site if you need a free test.
Thanks for the instructions. It worked. I appreciate your help.

It appears that your current library is the culprit. Do you have the iCloud Photo Library enabled? If not then launch Photos with the Option+Command keys held down and run First Aid on the library. Then try printing again. As always be sure to have a current backup copy of the library before attempting. Time Machine backups will do.
If you have the iCloud Photo Library enabled running First Aid on the library will trigger another full upload of all photos to the iCloud Photo Library. This would be a last ditch effort as it can take a long time.

It looks like you are receiving two notifications for all of your calendar alerts on your Apple Watch. You don't receive two alerts on the iPhone and you have the Apple Watch setting to mirror the iPhone. What I'd like you have you do is to:
- Turn the notifications off for the calendar on both devices
- Restart both the Apple Watch and the iPhone
- Turn the notifications back on for each device

The Heath app on your iPhone combines health and fitness data from Apple Watch, iPhone and any other sources - such as third-party apps and accessories - that share data to the app.
When doing so, it automatically adjusts the reported results to avoid any double-counting of the same types of data for the same periods from different sources:
