    Changing a single fret will more than likely be a cause for a complete crown and dressing of the other frets. Simply put (unless the guitar is relatively new and unplayed), you're putting a new fret with worn ones.
    I would suggest taking it to a reputable shop to have the work done. If however you're bent on doing it yourself you'll want to contact the maker of the guitar, or just look up the specs as to which fret wire they used for your particular model.

    Good luck.
