SharePoint 2010: Is it possible to replace content type from existin libraries?

Hello. I have multiple document libraries with custom content type (content type hub). I would like to replace existing content type with my fancy new content type.  Is it possible to create ps1/c# code that would do this? Should I expect problems? I guess SharePoint may not allow my code to remove existing content type.

In this thread I posted some code to change content types; http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/e61f920c-b9ba-44a9-8502-3243621bcdc8/adding-a-content-type-document-to-manyall-libraries-in-a-site?forum=sharepointgenerallegacy

This is managed code rather than powershell, but it can be adapted.

You can have two content types assigned to a list.  You will not be able to remove the original content type of that list if there are any list items that are using that content type.
You can switch a list items content type via the list item properties, or you can also do this via code / PoSH script
