I think the limiting factor in replacement would be the size of the current bearing.
I don’t think there is enough room to replace it with a needle bearing.
And since I don’t have a machine shop I’d also be concerned with alignment and how that would affect feeding wood through it. (Although with all the wear in that one bearing it was surely not holding pieces down equally on both sides.)
