Newbie lifter here, I know I need around 3000-3300 calories a day for my weight while bulking, and a gram of protein per lb of my body, but how many grams of carbs and fat?

I have a more specific question than the OP if anyone is willing to answer.
I've been considering playing around with my bulking macros a bit.
Does anyone know, or have any resources that talks about swapping carbs for fats?
For example a good carb amount for me per day (as determine by a calculator) on my bulking diet is around 200g of carbs. What if I wanted to drop that to 100g? Can I just take the 400 calories and put them towards fats?
At what point is fat too much I guess is the question.
There is a lot of talk about minimums, but not so much maximums.Currently making gains on Wendler 5/3/1.
