Transferring Contract to another member in same Family plan

I'm currently on a family plan, and the contract on my Samsung note 3 phone is finished, and I really need a new phone.

My Son has a new LG G3 phone on a 2 year contract, $350 early termination fee.  I'd like to cancel my sons plan, and simultaneously transfer his phone and contract to my number.  I'd get a new phone and avoid the termination fee.  I'm told that the contracts are based on the phone number, not the phone, so I can't achieve this. 

However I do believe we can change my sons phone number, to a number that's available.

If I were to cancel my number, thereby making that number available, could I then port that number to my son's phone?  Can this be done?
