I wouldn't replace the converter. The heat shields coming loose is a common problem. Take a couple hose clamps and tighten it against the converter. As far as the muffler, you will need to cut the OEM one off and the new one will fit between the area. There will be directions specific to the muffler you purchase, so you need to follow them. Don't replace the converter unless it is bad inside. Again, the heat shield is a common problem. Tighten it using a couple hose clamps put together.
Let me know if you have other questions.
