I got a rose gold iphone se in the beginning of december 2016, i am really unsatisfied with this iphone and i was wondering if i could take the phone back (its feb 2017 now) and trade for a samsung ? My current tab for it is $315.00 on a 2 year contract. The phone is still in new condition (screen protector and case). I still want to stay on this same contract tho but just trade phones... Help pls

You won't get back much Hailey, the 14 days in which you can exchange your phone are long over I'm afraid. You are much better off to sell your iPhone - the resale value is quite good on eBay or Kijiji and you will probably be able to buy yourself a new Samsung and then some!

Yes you can. Your phone plan, number, etc. is all stored on the sim card so you can swap it into a new phone every day if you like. As long as the sim is the right size which it should be as most new phones use nano sims now.

Like Sophia said, you would be better off selling somewhere else, they sell for about $400-$500 on kijiji.

If i bought an unlocked phone from someone that was also on koodo, could it be used for both a prepaid phone or a contract ? For example if the phone i bought was on prepaid b4 can i put my sim card in it which is like a contract.

Yes, if it was on prepaid before you can use it on monthly, (assuming its a phone with a sim card tray which it mkst likely is).
As soon as you take the sim card out all of your data on your plan comes with it. You may want to give your device a factory reset to get rid of all your personal information, (songs, apps, logins, etc.) but yes, all you need is your sim card.
