Installing new water main shut off valve

I'm thinking of adding a water filter and will need to add a new shut off valve due to the location of the current one (right in the centre of the house, many feet away from where the main pipe comes in).

It is a 1" PEX (don't have a 1" crimper but will buy one for the job). Is it more complicated than shutting off the water main outside the house, splicing the pipe to fit the new PEX shut off valve, and crimping two 1" rings?
Cream rises to the top. So does scum.
