Hey, welcome to BF.
DT = drive train (sprocket, chain, chainrings...).
Also sometimes refers to wheel/parts manufacturer DT Swiss.
What brand/year is your road bike? That trek was maybe $550.00 when it was new.
If you want a more upright riding style, frame size/shape, stem/bar position, and seat height/position are all important. Mt Bikes aren't generally designed to be upright comfort bikes, but with some adjustments and part swapping they can be quite comfortable. Just my 2 cents.
