Transformation  from WGS_1984_Lambert_Conformal_Conic to WGS_84 coordinates?

I would like to transform a layer with raster information from WGS_1984_Lambert_Conformal_Conic to WGS_84 coordinates.

As I don't know the Projection Translation Parameters Dx, Dy, and Dz I seek your help.
If anyone knows the coordinates or could tell me where I can possibly find these that would be very helpful.

I am also not sure whether the previous projection by the original author has been made within a pre-defined cartographic projection. In the geoprocessing history, the description of the coordinate system has an "yyyyy" (name of the original author) ending (see red below). Can I assume that this means the projection has been intentionally changed? How can I possibly retrieve the change information from the data file?

Here is the metadata information

I look forward to your replies, thanks in advance for your help!
