Yes, you can travel immediately using your new passport. You will not have your BRP replaced just for a renewed passport.

I was in the same situation as you some time ago. It's going to be a judgment call by the officer based on how strong your ties to Singapore are, but one possible outcome (or, at least, my outcome) is that you will get a one-year extension to your REP.
