It is possible to cross-build for amd64, but you'll need a seperate partition to put the 64-bit environment on. Look at the mailing list archives. This question has come up before.
But to keep things simple, I'd advise you to backup your files, configuration files from /etc and possible /usr/ports/distfiles, reinstall from an amd64 CD and then rebuild your kernel, world and ports to your liking.
