[Larry Rosner] "Is FCX same as FCPX, or does it refer to FCExpress? "

It's my shorthand for FCP-X. FCExpress was discontinued before FCP7, and I didn't recommend that to people when it was current. Habit of mine to leave out the "P"...bad habit.

[Larry Rosner] " I was hoping to avoid having to learn new software."

In terms of learning curve, going to Premiere Pro would be the shallowest learning curve...very easy to pick up.

[Larry Rosner] "I'm not familiar with them, but thought they don't have means for expansion or changing cards if needed in the future"

That's the issue with them, but then again, you don't have that option with the current MacPros either...no card slots. There are Thunderbolt RAIDS and Thunderbolt capture cards and thunderbolt external chassis for cards now...

[Larry Rosner] "or will the a newer model of the old style MacPro tower give me the specs I need o run current OS and software?"

I wouldn't recommend that. The MacPro came out 5 years ago...2013...and has really NOT been updated at all. So you'll be paying current day prices for a 5 year old machine. iMacs are more current...or current macBook Pros.
