You can download a kernel.org
kernel or the fedora kernel source and
built it to be 64-bit and boot that on a 32-bit userspace and that
will get you around some kernel memory/resource limits, I did that
previously on one of my machines for 6-12 months before doing a clean
reinstall to 64-bit.
I dont know if you can convince dnf to install a 64-bit fedora kernel
on 32-bit userspace, if you can and it boots and it has the right
settings compiled in the kernel by default then that kernel will work
with a complete 32-bit userspace.
Why not just using a Fedora 64 bit kernel? You
can hammer rpm enough
to let you install that, and you get the 64 bit kernel + 32 bit userspace;
I did that years ago.
Then, after a while I converted some packages to 64 bit by replacing
some rpms with 64 bit versions. Then, my definition of "some" got expanded
to the entire distribution, and I got a fully 64 bit system out of what was
originally 32 bit. Not easy but possible. (anyway, the original post
asked for an easier way than a reinstall, so I don't advice doing this)
