I have Windows XP and Bodhi Linux installed on two different partitions and dual boot with Grub.

I want to leave XP untouched and replace Bodhi with Xubuntu 16.04.

Can I simply format the Bodhi partition and install Xubuntu on it like I normally would? Is there anything special I need to do?

Yes, exactly - you can format the Bodhi Linux partition and install Xubuntu on this partition. Boot from the Xubuntu installation media, choose the option Something else and select the partition where Bodhi Linux was installed as the target partition for the Xubuntu operating system. Here is a comprehensive installation guide : A Step By Step Guide To Installing Xubuntu Linux. There is nothing special to take care of - most important is to choose the Something else option, right at the beginning ... to avoid accidental damage of the Windows operating system you want to keep.
