Can I Use the Third Person Animations and Mannequin With the First Person Template?

I’m making a JKJA-like game (though all of my projects have “hopefully” in the title). If it works, I plan to publish it as Jedi Knight: Jedi Ripoff (kidding).

I’ve been building it in the First Person Template, but to have a good multiplayer game (like JKJA) and/or a game where I can switch to third person (like JKJA), I need to have a little bit more of a character than a pair of arms.

I haven’t, however, been able to find any tutorials for replacing the default arms with the arms (and the rest) of the mannequin from Third Person, or for adding/replacing the animations.

I really don’t want to start over, so does anyone have any ideas for how to accomplish this? (Using the TP mannequin as the FP character)

(I am asking this again, because I think the thread got closed or something after one answer that didn’t satisfy me. I’ll repeat my pretty much only criterion: I really, REALLY don’t want to start over.)
