Is it possible and if so how hard to replace the left and right button switches mouse buttons in a mouse? More sepcifically the Roccat Kone XTD, also would you have to solder?

Do you found a picture of the PCB? It should be a pretty easy, assuming they're normal omrons. With a little flux and a solder pump it shouldn't be too bad, but sometimes solder really wants to stick to the PCB.

Those are standard size microswitches, so any video about switch replacement should be applicable.
