    Sounds like if the light has been on for a while that irreversible damage may have already occurred to the bank 2 catalytic converter (if not bank 1 also).

    However, fix the symptom before putting the new converter on! If not, you will quickly damage the new one too. Sounds like a cylinder misfire on the #5 cylinder - this should be tested to determine if you have a plug or coil problem, or a different problem. Good luck.
