Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) There are numerous boxes sold at any Home Depot, Lowe's or local electrical supply stores that sell boxes that are rated for higher weights.

2) If necessary, ceiling drywall may need to be cut open to accommodate a replacement box.
