Adding and Removing Details on Die-Cast/Brass Engines

On some engines I will see a detail part placed in the wrong spot (eg, bell above the smokebox when it should be on the boiler) for a given roadname. In other cases I would like to add a detail (eg, grabirons) to help the model better represent the prototype. In some cases I likely would also want to remove details not present as well.

Is it possible to cleanly pull off a detail part from a locomotive without leaving behind an eyesore? Or is it just better to leave well-enough alone? Edit: forgot to ask if there is an ideal means of adding extra details - any recommended glues? I have heard of people using epoxy to put damaged pieces back together, wondering if I could use it in a similar fashion here. Thanks in advance!
