Yes, it is possible. See this guide Verizon has on how to do that:

My recommendation is to try Google DNS first. and are the IPs. Changing DNS should not break your Internet connection unless you enter the IP addresses wrong, or don't set valid DNS Servers. Once applying, make sure to reboot the router once to verify that all devices on your network get the new settings.

As for running two routers, yes it is possible. I would avoid that if at all possible.
