In my opinion, you're sinking too much money into a not so great guitar.
Sorry.

It's possible but not with that guitar.

Besides that, it's not worth it.

PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

You couldn't throw a Gibson neck onto a Fender straight away, mainly because of the scale length and nut width and stuff like that. You could get one from Warmoth, but yeah, I wouldn't bother doing it on such a cheap guitar.

Absolutely! Buy a 25.5" scale neck with a paddle headstock that you can shape ala Gibson's open book headstock. eBay has a bunch from cheap to high-end or you can buy them online elsewhere.

Good Luck!
