Generally Premiere Pro is very good about relinking in the situation you describe. As long as everything is within your main project folder, then the relative paths stay the same.

Worst case - you may have to open the project file after you move the folder and relink the media. This would happen as you launch the file and it seeks to locate all media. However, that really isn't necessary until the next time anyone needs to open the project in order to do revisions. You could handle that the next time it's opened (only needed once). So you wouldn't have to do it with every project if you didn't want to.

You should be able to simply option+drag the folder to the new location and let it copy. Or use an application like Hedge to copy with verification.

Project Manager is good when you want to create a smaller archive version of your final sequence and not the whole project. Or if you have media spread all over the place. That way you could truncate the media to only that used in the final version. PM let's you 1) copy all used media in its entirety, or 2) copy/trim/transcode new media files that correspond to the length of the used clips in your timeline, with head and tail handles.
