I have a 1984 xr 250 , has anyone ever swapped to a18 inch wheel or for that matter changed swing arm and gone to disk .

but lots of guys have. Simple swap apparently. Do the whole swingarm/wheel, easier they say. I have two sets of wheels or I'd do it to my 350. Plus I don't want the extra seat height. Braking shouldn't be much stronger as my drum will lock up the rear wheel, anything stronger won't do anything in most cases. Lot more tire choices.

Yes and yes. An 86-89 rear wheel will work fine. I'm running a 90 rear disc setup on my 84.
