Can I purchase the new iphone 5s with my upgrade eligibility, but continue to use my current iphone 5 (which works flawlessly) and try and unlock the 5s to sell and make some $$$? Or will the 5s have a 2 year constraint before it can be unlocked? Or will there be any barriers blocking me from unlocking the 5s? What if i purchase the 5s directly from the apple store? Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

As long as you purchase the iPhone 5S on an AT&T contract, that contract will have to be fulfilled before the phone can be unlocked no matter where you purchase it from. You are free to buy an iPhone 5S and continue to use your current phone, but it won't be able to be unlocked until two years are completed.
