And if it is indeed possible, how can I switch from i386 to

If your hardware supports it, you can either reinstall from scratch or
cross-grade an existing install from i386 to amd64, either using the
crossgrader tool or more manual methods of doing the same thing.


If I had to do it, I would just upgrade to Debian 11. It is most easy to do and you do not need things like a crossgrader tool. Though the procedure seems somewhat difficult to me, it is interesting to know that something like crossgrading exists and where you find documentation about it.
