Sampler plugins and programs:

Drum Samplers:
Idrum
NI Battery

Samplers:
NI Kontakt
Sample Tank
Mach 5 (the native DP one... not sure if it comes bundled)

And there are numerous free ones. ww.google.com is a good place to start =)

As for replacing the MIDI sounds, I don't think so. SoundFont is the
only way i know to do this, and that works, as far as i know, with
Soundblaster cards for 3rd party programs.
