Steam Boiler

Can you convert a steam heated house to forced water?

I'm buying a house that has radiators and baseboards and currently has a steam boiler that doesn't work. Could I put in a forced water boiler and use the old pipes? And can radiators be converted from steam to water? And hydronic is the same as forced, right?
(I've only worked with forced air systems before.)
The furnace is 70 years old and looks like it's about to fall apart. The water heater is 15 years old and rusting and needs to be replaced too. I'm thinking of getting a water boiler, furnace/water heater combo.

It can be done have to change the air vents on radiators steam air vents will leak water. And probably will need some plumbing most steam system are one pipe at radiators an water needs two pipes at the radiators.
