I having multiple pages which are created using OOTB page layouts. I want to replace those with custom page layouts. Is there any way to replace the dependency of page layouts with corresponding pages?

You can change the page layout of any page using PowerShell or CSOM approach.

Please find below CSOM approach (it's a pseudo code):

string _newPageLayoutUrl= "new page url";
string newPageLayoutDescription ="new desc";

    clientContext.Load(web);
    clientContext.ExecuteQuery();
    List pagesList = web.Lists.GetByTitle("Pages");
    var allItemsQuery = CamlQuery.CreateAllItemsQuery();

    ListItemCollection items = pagesList.GetItems(allItemsQuery);
    clientContext.Load(items);
    clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

    foreach (ListItem item in items)
    {
        var pageLayout = item["PublishingPageLayout"] as FieldUrlValue;
        // This will return the Full URL of Page Layout - https://.....aspx

        try
        {
            item.File.CheckOut();
            item["PublishingPageLayout"] = new FieldUrlValue() { Url = _newPageLayoutUrl, Description = newPageLayoutDescription };
            item.Update();

            item.File.CheckIn("comment", CheckinType.MajorCheckIn);
            item.File.Publish("comments");
            clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {

        }
    }
