I am migrating a physical server to azure and its taking quite some time. A few questions arise.

Can someone confirm that starwinds will do a final snap at the end to pull in all the recent changes that have occured during the migration time?

Also, is it possible to "refresh" the Azure VM later, for example, if the migration finishes and we are not ready to connect users to the Azure VM, can we rerun P2V later and just pull in incremental changes or is it a fresh start?

Yes, you can continue using the system that undergoes P2V.
The converter makes a shadow copy of the disk so that data will be up-to-date in the resulting VHDX.
