Replacing VMware Hosts in a Cluster Environment

We are a small operation that has two VMware hosts in a cluster environment running VMware 6.5.  I am getting ready to swap out these old hosts with new ones.

I am very green when it comes to VMware & Vcenter.  How can I go about swapping out the existing hosts with new ones?  I would like to be able to give the new hosts the same FQDNs, IP addresses, etc. as the hosts that they will be replacing.
