just create a system restore image (under file history) and use a recovery drive, everything will be passed into your new drive.

Can you give an example of these settings your wanting to transfer? Having a difficult time coming up with more than a handful of things that should take all of a couple of minutes to redo, so not sure worth the hassle of any sort of transfer, etc.
installing Office on an SSD takes all of 5 minutes, even the installation of an OS takes about 10-15 minutes at most.
Then, transferring files - is horrid if connecting via USB, hopefully you have USB3 or cloud storage and a speedy conxn

If you log into your machine using a Microsoft Account (as opposed to a regular local user accounts), there's already a ######-ton of settings that are persisted online and will propagate back to any machine you subsequently log back into using that same account.
As others have said, can you provide us with examples of settings you want to transfer? It could very well be that everything you care about is already going to be transferred back automatically.
