At present i am using Xilinx ISE tool to program Spartan 6 FPGAs.
Is it possible to program the same using vivado?
Please let me know if there is any workaround for programming the same.

No, the Spartan 6 series isn't supported in Vivado.
Vivado will still happily load a bitstream onto a Spartan 6, but it cannot build a bitstream for that chip.

I have thought of replacing Spartan 3 fpga with Artix 7 and i have searched for the same but coudlnt find it.
Could you please let me know whether there is any Artix 7 family FPGA available as drop in replacement for Spartan 3 XC3S1000FG456 and Spartan 3 XC3S1000SWAP ?
Please let me know for availability

First, I would create another post for a different question.
Second, just out of common sense, I don't think they considered making Artix-7 compatible with spartan-3 as nobody would consider making Windows-10 compatible with Windows 95 (and I think the comparison is time accurate)

There is no drop in replacement. Different voltages, different pinouts, different packages, different IO Standards.
