I'm not sure Exactly what you're asking, but I'm pretty sure you just want to know if you can go from 5sp friction to 6sp indexed.

You may just need to add indexed shifters and a 6sp freewheel and get lucky and have it work fine, or you may need to change out basically everything that helps shift the gears to get smooth indexed shifts out of it. It's kind of hit and miss.

You might try searching the internet to see if others have found indexed shifters that are compatible with your RD. Just a start, but maybe this will end up easier than you expect.
