Sure, undo both, remove both, swap over and refit (only one!)

Have a look at it, its one of the simplest things to do.

As for the spoiler light, it connects at the RHS hinge, plug the new bootlid on the loom.

If your OLD bootlid wiring was butchered, cut each wire at slightly different lengths, and use a good electrical tape (nitto) to insulate.
But honestly, theres no excuse to leave any non used wires.
