Are there any parts that MUST be changed or replaced when making a motherboard upgrade?

No , you don't need to change any part in your build
Just get same bus speed ram so it won't slow the old rams .
Basically only a new bit of thermal compound for when you move the CPU, will want to clean off old and apply new
