So I want to use only vanilla gnome with Elementary OS as I am more at ease working with that.
However,(I am using Freya) I cannot seem to find a solution for implementing this.
How should I replace Pantheon with Gnome.

why not use ubuntu gnome directly than elementary?
The problem is that you can't use the latest version of gnome and keep pantheon and other elementary apps, this is because the gtk version used in both desktops are diferents, pantheon uses gtk 3.14 and the latest version of gnome use gtk 3.20, so if you install one the other broke.
Any way if you still want to try to install gnome just run this two commands:
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop
this will install gnome 3.14 to your pc.
