Ideally, you would want to have some of the old stuff/be it fiber floss,sponge, whatever,in the filter water flow areas so that the new media gets seeded.You can trim a chunk of the old material and stuff it into the filter. You can also swish or squeeze the old filter material directly in the tank and let the new filter media suck up the bacterial goodness.

So it's okay to use just a piece of the old media? I dont need the whole thing? And I can just stuff the old piece in with the new?

Yes that should work,and it would be even better if you could combine that with the filter swish/squeeze in the tank.
