Main Halyard replacement and re-placement

I have a 79 P-30 #1143. My current line to wire halyard is quite frayed where they join together and needs replacing. Can this be done with all line since the stretch factor is no longer an issue ?. I know there is a groove in the masthead sheave. Does this preclude using all line, if not what's the largest diameter rope that will fit ?
Also I would love to run the halyard back to the cockpit. Has anyone done this?
Could I relocate the winch on the mast to the cabin top. How would I make it secure enough ? What other hardware would I need to add ?
