I want to do this because the 5s has a larger capacity battery and I believe they are the same size.
The upgrade will be easy for me because I can handle a screw driver and a suction cup.

Thanks.

The connector placement may be a little different and the actual style of connector may not be the same. But if it'll fit, it should work.

No!

Anyone that has taken these apart will notice the connection and layout is not the same!

iPhone 5 only works with iPhone 5 batteries!

However, the (larger capacity) iPhone 5S battery does fit in the iPhone 5C.

Actually I think the iPhone 5C has a larger capacity battery than the 5S.
