You will have to do a clean install. There is no way to do an in place change between 64 and 32.

Yep, clean install to move from 64-bit to 32-bit (or the other way around). However, if you can live with 64-bit, you can do an in-place upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional using the Anytime Upgrade feature of Windows 7.
