No à New plan is not needed. The Sim cards might not fit. You can use gsmarena to see which one you have takes. If its a newer one it's likely a nano and you'll need to cut your current card with a stamp (and be gentle as nano spec is thinner but the tolerances are generally ok) or if you're even if little uncomfortable just get a new one. Or if you have on of those 3-in-1 perforated ones just snap off whatever to get to nano unless you have a latest Moto g.

Just go to best buy, purchase a Koodo SIM (it will come with all sizes) for $10+Tax call Koodo ask for a 'SIM Swap' they'll walk you through.

No need to call . It will be long wait time...

Log into self serve > Scroll down and Change phone > Upgrade my current phone >
Enter new SIM number 

If store is not busy, then they might offer to swap it.
