You shouldn't be using the title as your term, specifically because
it's not unique.

Basically, this is an already solved problem. The post_name is unique,
and if you're "mirroring", then that should be your new "slug" in the
terms table. The term_name can be anything, and you can make it the
title if you like, but the slug is what has to be unique.

No, multiple terms can have the same names. The unique key is on the
slug. You can always change the name of the term to anything you
