Now that's a really complete answer to a question. Very cool.
Mmmmm. Old Topre goodness.
How easy this will be depends on what the serial signals are. There are a number of possibilities:
I am not sure that one can mix and match keyboard and terminal with a VT-220. The LK201 uses an RJ connector not mini-DIN-8, takes 12V power not 5V, and has RS423 serial levels not TTL.
i got many keyboards with blue switchs but they werent enought tactile, bouncing to my taste
I believe at some point, some user modified the keyboard to take a MX switch on the caps lock because;

Another one had its own thread, and another thread describes another family of keyboards with that switch and the switch itself, for which there is a wiki entry, too.
