Does this make sense? Would I still have 12 gpm's of flow, of would that decrease if the pressure is increased by the new pressure switch?
Uhhh, that is more a confession of incompetence. You don't evaluate a pump while it is cycling on and off.

Besides, you adjust a pressure switch, rather than swap it out.
