Hope the following procedure may help you. Some time back I changed my DB character set from US7ASCII to UTF8 which supports Japanese.

Constraint here is that the new character set should be the super set of old character set.

In the above case, UTF8 is super set of US7ASCII, So I could do it.

SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE; -- Normal
STARTUP MOUNT;
ALTER SYSTEM ENABLE RESTRICED SESSION;
ALTER SYSTEM SET JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES=0;
ALTER DATABASE OPEN;
ALTER DATABASE CHARACTER SET new_character_set_name; -- Do not enclose the character set in quotes
ALTER DATABASE NATIONAL CHARACTER SET new_character_set_name; -- Do not enclose the character set in quotes
SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE; -- or NORMAL
STARTUP;

I think I mentioned the constraint clearly in my previous reply. If the situation supports that condition, you can definitely do that.

And the new character set is going to be applicable for new insertions only.
