Assign Existing Line to Another Existing Phone

What is the most economical way to reassign an existing Verizon phone number to another existing iPhone already on my family plan? It looks like I can't avoid a fee, but would like to reduce it as much as possible ($20 through the app verses $40 in store?) and the exact details for a do-it-yourself option are not fully clear. It also looks like I will need a new SIM card since one iPhone is 5G capable and the other is not.

For clarification, I am ordering a new iPhone for one line, then plan to take that previous iPhone and give it to another family member. Their oldest iPhone will then be taken off the account.

Move the Sim card. The Sim card contains the phone number. 
If you need to add a new line, you can do that online. Activate the new Sim card in the older phone that you plan on using on that line.
