    pics please

    pictures and more information would be a big help.  What type of boiler are you going to install?

    Yes, it is possible to build a new header and equalizer for the boiler and then connect a supply line to the old header. 

    However, it is impossible to say if this is a good idea without more information on your system and your proposed boiler.
