I want to change the Gear Stick to a newer version and want to know if they are compatable and if much work is involved?

Hi and welcome,
It's possible but not easy. The 2007 gear lever has its lock button working east-west across the car, the newer models have it working north-south along the car. This is the part that's difficult to change, you either heat and twist the plastic operating rod that's underneath the selector (risk of damage) or replace the whole selector assembly (quite pricey).
Another option is to solidly fix the gear knob to the operating rod and do the gear selection by lifting the knob.
HTH,
Regards,
John
