Since you asked. Sure, leave original straps for your upcoming hike. Then switch out to whoopie slings. You will have gained experience with both and you will have saved weight.
Do use tree straps with your whoopie slings! Don't injure every set of trees you ever hang from. But I bet you know that.
I definitely changed out the straps on my wife's ENO, yes. Also cut off the attached stuff sack straps and ditched the heavy 'biners.
