Switching from 2 ton to 3 ton AC unit

My old (2 ton) unit compressor fried last summer. A friend has a 3 ton that he isn't using. My upstairs is about 1500 sq feet. Downstairs is always cool so I keep the vents shut. I know nothing regarding ac units, so I apologize in advance for dumb questions.

Can I switch out to the 3 ton unit for my house? Is it an electrical issue I need to find out about / deal with, or is it just not doable?

Thanks in advance.

Is this a package unit, or a split system that your buddy has a 3 ton condenser for?
