Would I be able to use a trunk from a 99 e320 to replace the trunk on my 00 e320? Same thing for rear driver's side brake light housing.

No on both questions.

The rear brake light housing is slightly different on the back and you will not be able to mount it properly.

The trunk switch is part of the window switch and mirror switch assembly its all only piece and they can't be interchanged between the pre and post face-lift.

addressing the brake light housing (2 part): there are many posts (scroll down to
"Lights, tail lights, converting ..." on various 210 forums detailing 'upgrading' from
96-99 taillights to the 00-02 taillights. the mounting seems solid on the fender side.
on the trunk lid, a bit of shaving of reflector plastic is needed in order to clear metalwork
on the trunk (about 15 minutes effort). this is a mod I have done and there has been
no discernable water seepage anywhere over the past 10 years.

I have no insight into 'downgrading' the taillight taken from a 96-99 and mounting it on a
00-02 w210.
