Let me make sure I understand.

You want to exchange Pi boards, keeping everything else the same, but ensure that you continue to be credited with all your existing statistics?

Have you tried just doing it? Swap, and go to My ADS-B and see what you see?

Coming from the same IP address, it should automatically claim it for you and put it on your account.

Hi Zahidul Hasan!

If you want to assign old station number and its statistics to new Pi, you have to use old Pi’s MAC address on the new Pi.
To replace new Pi’s MAC address by old Pi’s MAC address (called mac address spoofing), please see this post:

FA feed identity rely only its MAC. So swapping add a new feed identity under user account & older lost connectivity.

MAC changing only solution found.

Thanks bro to response.

Can you please post details of this method so that others can benefit from it?
There are two file named rc.local as shown below. Which one have you edited?
/etc/rc.local
/etc/init.d/rc.local
