it wouldnt make much of a difference. But it wouldnt be a matter of unbolt the V8 one and bolt the 6cyl one in its place.

Assuming the inlet and outlet pipes are the same diameter between the V8 and 6cyl, you could unbolt the cat from the v8, take it to someone that can cut the cat out and weld a 6cyl cat in its place.

final option is not recommended and could be illegal if using the car on the road. Unbolt the cat, and do what you can to remove the inner parts of the cat that is rattling, then replace. This is not a good suggestion, but could serve as a quick fix to remove the rattle until you get a replacement.
