Freehub body upgrade question

Hey folks,

Looking to upgrade my 2016 Specialized Hardrock (specs here) from the stock components. They're starting to show their age, and with the LBS having limited hours/availability due to COVID, I've been getting into tinkering with my bike at home.

I've got a good idea of my riding preferences, so am looking to do the following:

1) convert from 3x to 1x crankset

2) replace Suntour fork shocks with rigid carbon fork

3) would love to upgrade from 7-speed cassette to 10-speed cassette to have more gear range

Now the first two I'm set on, and have the parts and everything. My question is with the rear wheel hub:

Current hub body is 30mm, and from my understanding I need at least 35mm for 8/9/10 speed cassettes. Rear fork dropout spacing is 135mm, so I should be good for clearance there.

Can I replace my 7-speed freehub body with an 8/9/10-speed Freehub body? I've seen very little info on this, and mentions of having to re-dish the wheel. Is this accurate?
