450 front diff swap

Can you swap a newer 450 selectable 4wd front diff to a 2000 model 450 that didnt come with it

It's been done but I haven't done it. I think the frame has to be modded and I'm not sure on the driveshaft. A search might bring up some of the old threads that go into detail on it.

IIRC, you have to notch the frame up front for the longer rear part of the new diff (the actuator).
