its not a stupid question

For all intense and purposes the answer is no. The reason I say that is because you can take an old Dish 300 (that had one LNB on it) and use it on Directv for 101W
But anything else wont work

To elaborate on that, the reason the multi-LNB's are not interchangeable is due to the spread of the orbital slots. Directv dishes and LNBs are designed to have a 2 degree spread (99/101/103) and 9 degree spread (110/119) in the same dish. Current DISH dishes and LNBs are actually two different designs depending on which arc they have to look at - Eastern arc (77/72.7/61.5) or Western Arc (110/119/129). So without getting into the geometry part of it, if you put a 2 or 2-9 degree LNB on the end of a dish designed for 5-11 or 9-10 degrees, it's going to be off by literally tens of thousands of miles in space.
