Make sure the press is not going to put pressure on the parts towards the middle past the out lip. If it will, then you will then certainly deform the joint and I would suggest finding another solution.

You do not have to replace the seal on the hub if you are not going to re-pack the bearings and they are not harden and cracked. But if you do re-pack them, then most likely you'll need new ones as they can get tweaked and not be reusable when removed.
