One more thing. If i replace the dvd player came with the Philips home theatre to a Philips Blu-ray 3D player can i connect the speakers to the new player? If i do it the 5.1 speakers will work same as with the player bought originally?

You have to make sure that the audio out of the TV is the correct type to connect to the Phillips HTiB. Most TVs have optical digital audio outputs.
The only compatibility issue will be that you may have to use two remotes where the same branded units may work with one.
If you add a Bluray you can connect it directly to the TV and get the sound through the same connection as above. You will not get the same sound however since you will not be able to use the lossless audio codecs that Blurays have. You will get the same sound as the DVD would give you.
If you bought a HTiB with the Bluray built in then you would probably get the better sound.
