Need a little clarification

I just bought a 1974 Ford F100 w/ 360 & C6 with a shift kit. I am not at all familiar with fe motors. From what i understand, everything other than the crank and rods between the 360 & 390 is interchangable. Is this right? How tough of a job is it to swap the crank and rods (what needs to be done). If i swapped them out could i then consider it to be a 390 as far as upgrading and performance parts are concerned? I'm like a kid in a candy store that's lost!! Lol!! Just want to improve performance and trying to start from the basics. Also, i put dual glasspacks with down spouts but no headers. I was told that the stock manifolds are best to keep on with these older trucks. Opinions?
