is it possible to change stove burners?

i am at my sister-in-laws for a week and they have what looks like a newer version of our stove at home(rental). They have a large and simmer burner where we only have "medium" burners on all 4 corners. These are rather generic GE stoves, the sealed burners look the same. Part of me wants to order a sealed simmer burner ring and try to drop it in on my stove at home, but i dont know if any of the internals need to be changed. is what i am trying to do at all possible? Has anyone had success changing burners on their stove? Any horror stories? :D
i know some of the higher end ranges can be reconfigured (a la bluestar) but is this a premium feature of a more expensive range?
Really hoping to get a simmer burner on my stove :)

Edit: this is a gas stove. Forgot to mention that :P
