Sand is fine to use, pool filter sand being better then playsand. I have pool sand in all my tanks.
Is there a reason you want to change substrate?... You can do it, but it takes a little work. First you have to remove all the plants, then fish, most of the water then the old substrate. After that you have to replace the substrate, rescape, finish filling with water, let the water clear if needed then put the fish back in. Give yourself a day to complete this task.
