Can you move a gas fireplace from the upper level of the house to the

I have that corner gas fireplace in my upstairs living room which is a foolish place to place it in the first place but can I take it apart and move it to the lower level of my home where it could utilized? After using it for five minutes in the front room we have to turn it off because we are burning up and the rest of the house is still cold especially the lower level ! I can apart but I cannot take the gas out! I would like to place wood flooring over it but how do you seal off the gas line?
