Don't mess with your brakes unless you know what you are doing.

The mk2 focus and mk3 mondeo both use 300mm front discs (some models) but I doubt they will be a direct fit, you would also need to balance the rear with bigger brakes and more than likely change the master cylinder.
Probably not worth the hassle

agreed if you upgrade the front to 300 you will have to alter the rears either go bigger or have the balance sorted a bigger master cylinder is needed cost wise its not cheap upgrading the disks and pads to a quality set is a better option
