I would just tftp the files off the switch edit them and tftp them back on with a new file name.  If you are looking to do it through the web UI you need to upgrade to 21.1.

It won't be easy, nor is it recommended, to edit the XML in a .cfg file.  I would recommend that you use the save config-as command.
Take a look at the discussion in this thread to see if it helps to clarify:  https://community.extremenetworks.com/extreme/topics/opposite-of-save-configuration-as-script
