Looks like newegg only sells motherboards from one company that supports this, and they are really expensive. I wonder if it would be cheaper to buy a new single processor and motherboard instead. But then I don't know if your ram would fit on it or not...
To take the cpus out of the old motherboard, you will have to take the heatsinks off, so, yes, you will totally need to use thermal paste if you want to continue to use the same heatsinks. You can search how to properly clean off the chips and heatsink and apply the new thermal paste. Alternately, if you buy new heatsinks you could buy ones that have the thermal pad thing already in place, in which case you would not need to get thermal paste.
