Moving, and would like to take some of my very different succulents along for the ride there. But will they survive the trip, will they survive the change in weather? How can I bring little cuttings with me of the succulents? What do you suggest?

Here is info on fruits from University of Minnesota extension:

Succulents are tough and should survive the trip with no problem. If you take cuttings, don't cut them till the day before you leave. After cutting, let them air dry for three or four days so the cut edge can dry. This will make them easier to transport. Just pack them loosely such as in a small open box so they can get air.
Your plants should survive the temperature change but you will need to bring them inside when the outside temperatures reach about 50 degrees F. (10 C.) Or just keep them inside with the appropriate light and watering needs for those plants.
