On my computer i have a cpu which to the best of my knowledge is a processor just in different terms that is a "x86 based processor" if i buy a cpu that is 64 bit and exchange it for my current cpu can i then run a 64 bit OS

if you mean simply swap the cpu... the answer is NO

to upgrade the cpu will need a new motherboard and probably new memory... the upgrade is normally worthwhile

BUT most computers run 64bit happily... try the windows10 compatibility program
