Can an ar15 223 be changed over a 308 cal.

No such conversion I'm aware of. If you wan't an AR in .308 you buy a Armalite AR-10.

No. Mag well is not big enough. if .308 upper on .223 lower they won't match. Many reasons why not. Buy AR10.

At the risk of sounding like a smartazz, isn't the 300 whisper .308 cal?

as well as the 7.62 by 39mm (sorry I couldn't help myself)

No. It is the .300 Whisper. Groove diameter is .308. The caliber/cartridge designation is .300 Whisper.
