I'd do it, but if it's a guest room you'll probably have to turn off the filters at night for your guests.
As for moving, you'll need to drain the tank with some water into a bucket and put the fish in there (or use cups for betta). Then you'll have to shovel out the substrate into another bucket, and pour a tiny bit of water in there, to keep the substrate moist. Throw any filter cartridges in there too to keep em from drying out. You need to take everything out of the tank, even leaving the gravel in can cause a tank to collapse when you lift it up (and makes it way heavier).
If you have around $100, you can buy heavy duty shelving at a hardware store, otherwise, they'd be fine on the ground but if you end up getting a shelf one day you'll have to move them up all over again. I have heavy duty shelves in my bedroom and they are pretty decent.
Any fish room should be better than none, you can store all your junk in there I think you'll have room for more fish tanks too.
