Quake 2 Gladiator and Lithium 2 compilation

Last Modified: 2020-05-20
I would like to know how much work is needed and how expert a developper should be in C/C++ to merge and compile two projects together.
This is for the game Quake II from ID Software, with the source code available freely.
One project is a bot mod (Gladiator from Mr Elusive), to add bots in a hosted multiplayer game, and the second project is a multiplayer game modification named Lithium 2.
Source code is available for both modifications, and the bot mod documentation indicates that the source can be modified to include any server modification.
So I would like to merge both projects and compile it.

At this stage, I would like to know what is the feasibility of this. I've seen old servers running with these projects combined.
The server game modification (Lithium) source is here: https://github.com/quake2lithium/quake2lithium.github.io/blob/master/downloads/Lithium%20Mod/li2mod-1.31-src.zip
And the bot modification is here: https://github.com/earth-metal/ugladq2
