Talking Roman Tub Faucets

I'm trying to replace my existing builder grade faucets with some snapping new ones from Price Pfister. I pulled out the existing Windsor style stem only to find that they won't fit on the new handles. The stems have the star pattern that is found on most stems and the faucet handle has something that looks like a flat type of stem which very well be available from PF. My question is are the stems interchangeable? Can it be as simple as replacing the stem to complete this portion of my remodel and will they fit? Or do I need to completely replace all of the plumbing from underneath? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated...

Most stems are not interchangeable and will mean you must replace the whole faucet to upgrade from any brand other than the original brand.( More faucet companies now are making their faucet trim packages to fit the same body from their own faucets, which is something that was not done in the past).
