if ya buy a new upper do ya have to get a new bolt assembly?

also on 9mm upers do they come with a new bolt?

Some come with them, some come without them. Bushmaster in particular has them with or without with a difference in price. Stripped comes with nothing at all, some are put together with only the dust cover and forward assist. Upper receiver assembly comes with barrel/handguards everything already on it(again, sometimes minus bolt/carrier). When you buy, just check sometimes it is a significant price difference between getting a new one with a bolt/carrier or one without.

I have no idea about the 9mm uppers, never bought one.

Do you have to have a new bolt and carrier? No, but if you buy them together you are guaranteed that the headspace is in spec. If you don't, it will likely still be in spec , it is not guaranteed to be in spec.
