I need to replace 16GB FC 4 port module on FS5200
Is the WWPN of the 4 ports will change after the I replace it ?

It will not.WWPNs for Ports in Storage Virtualize products are generated from the WWNN of the Node Canister (which is programmed vpd in MFG and then stored in multiple places) and based on the slot location and adapter port numbering.
For your reference the replacement procedure is documented here: https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/flashsystem-5x00/8.4.x?topic=rrcep-removing-replacing-interface-adapter
