What you will need to look for is what material is the screen made of since they come in fiberglass, metal wire, as well as other fibers. The material that is made of should have a little stretch so it will be able to fit withing the frame.  You may want to stick to what you already have or consider some of the newer lightweight but durable materials.  Another option you have is to either buy the screen already framed or on a roll to use with your existing frame.

With the adjustable replacement window screens you would need to measure the width which is the part that is adjustable and the height but that is fixed so you will have to decide how much of an opening you will want. easy older home updates: replacing your outdated windows
