For an overview, see here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elastic-stack/7.0/upgrading-elastic-stack.html

For elasticsearch, start with https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/setup-upgrade.html I would create a snapshot of your data and restore it manually.

For Kibana, start with https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/upgrade.html. Export your saved objects (Management > Saved objects), and then re-import them. If you have a Basic license, you can also use the upgrade assistant for Kibana https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/7.0/upgrade-assistant.html

Since you are jumping a major version, please take note of any possible breaking changes.
