A quick way to test would be to boot from the 9.3 dual-layer DVD that has

into 64-bit mode and allow you to change to 32-bit, if the processor
supports 64-bit operation...
No need to get the dual layer out. The boot.iso should be able to do it.
Also the first CD x86_64 should be able to do it.
To the OP: Best first look if you really have a 64 bit processor and as
you are running a lot of 32 bit software, don't expect too much.
If you want a 64 bit OS, then reinstalling is really the best way to go.
Many things are specially build for the 64 bit system.

that is because I did not know what I was doing and most of it was
Now I need 2-3 hours (1 hour pure installation) to get things like I
