I'm not an expert on guitar wiring and tech-y stuff like that. I just wanted to know if taking a knob from a les paul (Epiphone) and replacing it with a switch is possible? If so, how? Thanks, and sorry if this is a stupid question.

It's entirely possible, but I'm fairly sure the hole diameters required aren't the same, so you'd either have to drill out the hole wider or shim it. Also, don't you already have a pickup selector?

Yes this is possible. as K33nbl4d3 already mentioned the hole diameter will be off so you'll need to drill the hole slightly larger; also you'll need basic understanding of soldering; schematics are freely available on the internet (example: http://www.seymourduncan.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/2H_3G_2V_1T.pdf note that your wire colors may be different depending on brand of pickups). You can of course also bring your guitar to your local guitar shop and have them do it for a fee.

K33nbl4d3 Yeah, but I found it kinda easier to have it at the volume knobs instead of up by the neck. And for it to look like Bucketheads LP

are you referring to a kill switch?

That's fair enough - obviously you have to decide which knob you don't want anymore and possibly rewire another one as a master to make up for it, but besides that you can totally just expand one of the pots' holes, stick the switch in it and wire it in the same way in its new position. The other thing to consider would be that, if you replace a volume knob, for example, then the master volume knob will now have to come after the switch in the path to the output jack, rather than the two knobs coming before it as it would've been originally, and the tone pots will need to be connected to the pickup hot wires instead of the volume pot lugs. Likewise, as the Seymour Duncan diagram linked above shows, if you replace a tone pot the remaining one needs to come between the switch and the output jack, rather than connecting to a volume pot.
