the problem is it is about 42 inches wide and all the new ones are 30 inches. What do i do with the gap if i replace it?

If installing a smaller hood, I have no idea what you'd fill in the extra space with. You'd probably have to use you imagination to try to make something that doesn't look too out of place with the rest of your kitchen.
