As regards fan size, think of how you're going to mount it (attach it to your case, and space in the case for the fan: will a 25mm thick fan fit in in the space from which you have taken a 10 mm thick fan ?
Ensure you put the fan the correct way round (airflow is in same direction as originally intended)
Finally, I'd replace the fan with on that has the same or greater airflow capacity

I don't whether this is true. Statistically, may be.
Use the fan that suits you.
I don't about the fan you are trying to replace, sounds like an 80mm one. A 120mm would probably shift more air, but a) will it fit ? and b) how are tyou going to mount it it ? drill more holes in your case ? These are rhetorical questions to illustrate that there are other factors.
