The big block of words is a bit hard to read, but the only question I could get in there was would you need to change the cable. No, you don't need to because of size difference or imcompatibilities, but you'd probably want to as recycling used and installed cables can sometimes be a hassle as it unwinds and catches and kinks while trying to route it in housing. I would suggest having extra cables on hand and then trying to reuse the old ones.
It is an easy thing to change. I think all you would need would be a 5 mm hex.
