Replace block with element or furniture

Is there a command/script/GHplayer to replace a Rhino block by a VisualARQ element or furniture object?
Similar to the replaceblock command in Rhino.

Hi @Mario_ILL,

You could use a Grasshopper script to deconstruct the block instances and place the vaElement in the same place (you would need to remove or hide the blocks before baking the vaElements). Here you have an example:

Thank you Ahmet,

I even managed to make an element with attributes out of the blocks.
Alfonso’s solution works too but the script was easier to turn into a command.
