Yes, you can update your visual studio from 2005 to 2008 but when you open your project it will ask for application conversion (.sln file) which will then not open in 2005 but can open in 2008. If you want to change its framework from 3.5 to 2.0 then there is option in VS2008.

As stated above, 2005 is forward compatible, after a conversion via 2008/2010/2012

It is not backword compatible.

Also, if you have additional components such as infragistics, some may be outdated and will have to be repaired.

Otherwise, you will have no, or minimal imperfections durring the process

It's easy to test it. Simply copy the 2005 project and back it up. Then upgrade to project to 2008 and test it. If there's any problem, just rebuild the 2005 project until you're satisfied that you know what the problems are.
