The longer barrel of the RPK should fit. I've never changed out the barrel of an AK, so can't help on that part of the question.

You should discuss that with a gunsmith.  It may or may not be practicle and while it is certainly possible it most likely is not cost effective.

Brownells offers replacement barrels for aks , and while they are only 16 you could contact their supplier for a special order. American gunsmithing also has tapes for ak builds from brownells and changing one out is similar in theory to an ar. It depends on how commited and mechanical you want to get.

Not sure about Canada but here they consider the length of the barrel to the end of the flash suppressor or muzzle break so long as it is permanently attached but not if it will screw off.  You might be able to gain a few inches with some flash suppressors and have it permanently attached if you are only looking to add two inches this would be the most cost effective way.
