    Generally you will need a sample replacement plugin like Drumagog or Trigger 2. Using this you can load samples into the player and it will automatically detect the original hits and replace them.

    You can do it manually by tabbing to transient in your DAW and pasting the sampled hit each time, but this is very time consuming and you will likely end up using a replacement plug in about 1/2 through the first attempt at this.

    Here is a link to a site that shows you some options:

    As far as using the plug in you can use as an insert on the drum track to fully replace that sound. Run it as an Send to use it in parallel to augment your original drums, or copy the original drum track and use the insert method on the copied track to achieve parallel augmentation as well.

    I hope this helps.
