Can I replace the slippery Magic KeyB keys with replacement MBP keys?

I love the feel of the MBP keys. I’ve bought three Magic keyboards over the last few years, but only one had the same feel (It broke and I recycled it, stupidly). Now I’m using the Magic Keyboard 2 (Not the latest one with Touch ID), but I hate the slippery and clicky feel, so much less grip. The keys on the MBP are perfect, but I can’t use them due to RSI and neck pain.

TL;DR - Can I buy a set of MBP keys and swap them out on my Magic Keyboard 2 (Wirelesss with rechargeable battery version). This Magic Keyboard seems to be the exact same type of mechanism as my 16" MBP.

I don’t think anyone has attempted such a swap out. I would reach out to TheBookYard folks to see if they know. Or, review there keyboard information here Apple Key Caps

Thanks. Seems like they aren't compatible so will look for another solution. Maybe key covers are a think!

It's validating to see this comment—I have also moved from a MacBook Pro to a Mac Mini with Magic Keyboard, and despite my best efforts (literally getting an acrylic slab with cutouts to fit a Magic Trackpad below the keyboard, just like a MacBook), things are Not Quite Right. I finally ascertained that the keys on the Magic Keyboard just feel "slippery" in a way that the MBP's doesn't. I wonder if carefully applying pieces of matte screen protector to individual keys could help...
