That can depend on the brand, if your existing is say Honeywell and your new one you wanted is Hive then new receiver required.

Yes it’s relatively easy. If you’re completely unsure post photos of wiring. Just make sure you get one that supports the switching, not all are voltage free, some are mains only and if yours is extra low then it’ll be no good - switching comes from the boiler.
