Woo-hoo.  Party in Cleveland!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Where is he going to be the Bishop of? Will he be replacing the recently reposed Bishop on the West Coast? From the press release it seems like his consecration has been in the works for some time now.

Most likely, yes. But the relocation seems to be not immediate. There was a plan that he will remain in South Bound Brook for some time and continue his current activities. While the situation really improved from 10-15 years ago, UOC has a shortage of clergy. And Fr. Daniel does a lot of work as the Editor-in-Cheif of Ukrainian Orthodox Word, as the Dean of Students of Saint Sophia Seminary, as the Director of the Office of Public Relations and as a supply priest.
The Western Diocese of UOC includes a huge area. Exact information about states is here:

Only states, where we have parishes are listed. Well, an amendment to the list. Oklahoma and New Mexico should be added.

Actually, Fr. Daniel demonstrated excellent service. Very friendly and attentive to people. He has done many extraordinary things for the Church.
