The Browning Hi Power (P-35) was originally manufactured by Fabrique Nationale (FN). Over the years various minor changes were made in the barrel, and the pistol was made by other companies in various countries. Changing the grips shouldn't be a problem, but you should contact whoever is selling the barrels to be sure it will fit your gun. They will likely need the serial number to do this.

Go for it. The FN and FM barrels and slides are interchangable. I know.
Had a ham-handed 'smith cut a dove-tail out-of-square in my FM slide and tried to patch it with epoxy. Took it to another 'smith who knew what he was doing, had to order a new (used) slide (this one FN), and everything matched (barrel from the FM, and luge in the FN slide). Shoots like a dream, but looks a tad bit funky.

Yep, it should all work fine. Most of the parts you mentioned should drop in without fitting.
