Default 2004 Optra Hatchback to Sedan swap

Hey guys!

Need a bit of help. A friend of mine crashed his 2004 Optra Hatch (5). The front gril, hood, bumper headlight and a fender are damaged. I found a similar Optra sedan for parts. The front end is different but just looking at it quickly, I'm wondering if I can swap both fenders, bumper, hood and headlights and do a hatch to sedan front end swap?

Anyone know if all the parts would swap?

Also, any advice on replacing eh upper radiator / hood latch support? Part of it got bent (where the headlight bolts up). I was wondering if I can simply cut it out and weld in the one from the donor car.
