TO replace a Gibson nut you simply score the finish around the base of the nut (may not be much finish to score on a Faded model!) with an exacto knife. Then after removing the strings or loosening them and getting them out of the way another way, you place a small block on the fretboard up against the nut and tap it gently with a hammer. Or you can simply get a competent tech to file the slots for you (you need proper tools for this) as it should be less expensive than a full nut change. There's nothing wrong with the artificial nut material they use and bone nuts won't make much of a tonal difference considering they really only affect open notes. The the thing to worry about is the tonal balance between fretted notes and open notes.
Moving on.....

Unlikely.
