I have an Ibanez S470 from the late 90's. It has a TRS TREM on it. I would like to replace it with a better system. I haven't had much luck searching for answers for what might be compatible. The engraving reads TRS TREM not lo-TRS Trem. Are these different models because my google searches usually only bring results for the lo-TRS. What are your suggestions.

Secondly, is it possible to change out the neck for a 24 fret neck instead of the 22?

You can change the trem out pretty easily, I believe an OFR or Gotoh floyd rose will fit fine.

Unfortunately you can't get a 24 fret neck for a guitar built as a 22. The intonation will be way off. Of course, in my case I think thats more than compensated for by the fact that the neck pickup on a 22 sounds so much sweeter.

sorry I should have been more specific. I meant the string nut size. there are several options and I'm not technical enough to know.
