    Almost all matching speed components by shimano are interchangeable, so I'll say yes.

    If ones a flat bar lever and the other is a drop bar lever, can't google those model numbers ATM, no. You'll need new inner cables. you'll probably need to trim the housing of you're going from drop to flat and replace with longer housing if you're going flat to drop.

    They're both mtb style integrated lever/shifter combos.

    OP as long as you mount the new one right where the old one was for where the cable/housing goes in.. I can't see why you would need to redo everything else.
