My advice would also be to wait at least 6-12 months minimum before applying for anymore credit.
By the sound of it you are better off doing a new application to get the signup bonus, but IF you decide to convert one of your other Chase cards instead, I'd definitely recommend the Slate rather than the Freedom - once your balance is paid off of course. Other than being a great balance transfer card, the Slate doesn't have rewards like the Freedom. Likewise, if/when you apply for the new Marriott card, if you get a credit limit less than you'd like, you may want to consider moving some of your credit line from the Slate to the Marriott.
Sounds like you're off to a great start in your credit journey! The most important thing you can do now, IMO, is just keeping making on-time payments, keep utilization low, and above all give your credit time to age.
