They are different. The shop manual has specific sections about converting them for both headlight types. For the base lights it involves using "masking film". For the litronics, there is a "tourist setting" - the housing inside (past the control module/elecrical connection layer) is marked "T" and "0". 0 is the standard setting and T swaps the orientation for going to countries where they drive on "the other side" when you're feeling "touristy".

No, I think you can (but don't depend on just my word for this purchase!). You would just set the lights to the T setting (as if someone from the US were a "tourist" in New Zealand) and just leave them there. The manual makes no caveat about this being a "not the same as regular" usage condition (no mention of degraded performance/quality, etc.), just that this is the opposite setting from the non-tourist setting.
