I'm no good at chess, but I do know that castling does involve 'jumping over' but the pieces (Rook and King) don't change into anything else.
A pawn that reaches the eighth rank is exchanged for any other piece except a King. Usually a Queen is chosen.
That more or less sums up my knowledge of the game!
