I have a Redragon k555 mechanical keyboard. Can and how would I replace switches on this keyboard? Where should I buy said replacement switches (preferably silent mechanical)? Thanks for your time.

Would be cheaper and easier to just get a keyboard with the switches you want, you don't just pop them out and replace them. Plus that keyboard uses copy switches so you would need to get the ones compatible with the keyboard. You got pretty much the loudest switch out there, this should be good, fast switch action, good sale price https://www.bestbuy.com/site/corsair-rapidfire-k70-wired-gaming-mechanical-cherry-mx-speed-switch-keyboard-with-rgb-backlighting-black/5226009.p?skuId=5226009

I have this keyboard, very quiet keys https://www.bestbuy.com/site/corsair-strafe-rgb-mx-silent-gaming-keyboard-black/4370907.p?skuId=4370907 You can also make the standard keys quieter by using o rings, maybe $10 for a pack of 120-200.

Is there a switchless keyboard template I could buy if I'm really sold on a certain switch?

Sure, there are kits out there just do a web search and see what you like "DYI keyboard". People do custom setups where they use different switches for different keys (say the number keys vs letters, or wasd keys).
