I have a pentium d 945 3.4 ghz in my dell optiplex gx620 sff but the fan is spinning like crazy, also temps do not show up on any program. I wanted to know the model name of the copper heatsink for this if there even is one for the dell optiplex gx620 sff.

Actually no, I should clean the dust out. The fan started acting like this when I upgraded from a pentium 4 to pentium d.
Can the dell optiplex gx620 sff use aftermarket heatsinks?

As long as it fits inside of the case and both the cooler and motherboard use the same socket, yes.

When you changed CPU's did you clean off and reapply thermal paste?

Yes I used some micro fiber cloth and applied some silver thermal paste (not artic silver).
