I would like to know on how to upgrade to PHP 7, of course is I just want to upgrade php without updating other components as phpmyadmin, mysql, apache. It is possible? If I upgrade to php 7, do I need to update other components on my hosting server?

Moose pretty much nailed it, the easiest way is if your using CloudLinux with WHM. Each account can't select their own PHP version within cPanel.

The best option to use CloudLinux + CageFS to be able to do that. It comes with many useful extensions as well for each account.
