I currently have a 1TB hard drive that I would like to replace. Can I replace that SATA hard drive with a SATA III SSD of the same size? Would I have to change anything else on my PC or is it possible just to swap the drives and be good to go?

Yes, SATA devices are backward and forward compatible. No changes needed.

Not if it is the OS drive, you would want a clean install. If just storage no problem.
