If I deploy a second IPA server running RHEL/Centos 8, the file server with EL8 and continue to run my initial IPA server on EL7, I should be good, correct?  Or does the IPA domain need to be created on EL8 system to start.

Additionally, If I followed any of the instructions from my previous link, is there anything I need to undo prior to following the RHEL 8 instructions?  Thanks!

The procedure described there is not really supported. The supported
configuration is available starting with RHEL 8.1/Fedora 31 and is
described in RHEL 8 documentation already.

However, your problem is different (below)

Each user trying to access Samba should have SID associated with it. For
IPA users you can generate SIDs for those users that do lack it by
re-running 'ipa-adtrust-install --add-sids' on IPA master that serves as
Trust Controller already. You have to have at least one Trust Controller
among your IPA masters in order to have Samba integration.

After you did so, make sure 'kinit' again to obtain a new TGT that would
include PAC.
