You cannot update Apache in Xampp. That is one of the disadvantages using Xampp, there is no upgrade procedure. Dont use Xampp if you prefer to upgrade Apache on your own. Or wait until Bitnami releases Xampp with the matching Apache release.

How do I find out what version I am currently running? Can I not just install Apache into the Xampp Apache folder to upgrade it?

To find out which XAMPP version you are using, please read this:
=> [Q&A] Insufficient debug information - base information

As already mentioned, we do not actively support any single component upgrade guides.
Technically nearly everything is possible. It all depends on your own knowledge and experiences.

best wishes,
