possible to change repos from rolling to stable, and without any downgrades?

Hello :-) Mate semi-rolling and updates run really well, but I'd just prefer to switch to security updates/stable. Haven't changed repos on any system before, but have bookmarked the stable/unstable repo info pages, which explain things really well, so it looks like I could do it. Question is that am unsure if switching to stable would mean that packages are downgraded in the process? Hardware (and software use) works best on latest updates already installed, so am hoping can keep everything as it is, but just switch over to future updates being security updates/from stable repo. Thanks.
