Can I do this?

We were without electricity a couple weeks ago for 5 days. My generator electrically craped out, and I borrowed one. I've bought a new one 10,000W that if I'm careful should be able to run the whole house. My question is; I'm thinking for converting the generator from gasoline to propane. I have porpane for my TT solo 60 boiler. the line coming off the tank to the boiler is 3/4" can I run a 16hp generator in addition to the boiler with my existing gas line or will I need to upsize? Also is there a quick disconnect that I could get to connect the gen. to the gas line for temporary use. And can I use some sort of flexible hose to connect to the gen. as I'll be running the gen. outside not in the building. Thanks
