Well according to this testimony some high ranking officials in NK don't think they have much of a future under this regime anyway, but if we can convince them that they have a future after a revolt, they might get enough military power to overthrow the regime or at least hold long enough for SK/US and maybe even Chinese forces to arrive.

Yes
personally I am expecting a situation like in red Phoenix burning all the factions fighting with civilians stuck in the middle and the SK advancing with little resistance.

I also think it makes sense for China to support SK and US while it might not want a united Korea on its border it definitely doesn’t want a collapsing nuclear NK on its border.

I hope the Chinese wouldn't install a puppet government if they took the country. I hope they would turn it over to South Korea so there can be a united Republic of Korea.

No way that would happen tough. AT least not with SK and the US staying allies.
China wont just abandon thier strategic interests for a united korea. From which they would gain nothing

I can imagine that China would be willing to foot the multi-trillion unification bill in exchange for Korea aligning itself with China. I don't know how unwilling Korea would be to accept such an offer, though.
