While I don't think it would be a big deal to change his first animation, there are a few things to consider.

1) The Soldier:1st's weapons are part of their model and Cloud's weapon is...not. I'm not sure how this translates into animations exactly, but I know that weapon bones are different animals.

2) The Soldier is holding his weapon on the other side from Cloud. Most of Cloud's "leave idle" and "return to idle" animations are assuming he's starting out in his current handedness.

3) While more aesthetic than an obstacle, the cameras in battle are generally favoring Characters' left sides so the sword is shown more often. Up to you if you care about that, though. :)

I've been working on a similar project and here's some advice.  The propogate tool is our best friend, but can be your worst enemy.  Animation editing is more time consuming ad frustrating than anything else I've taken on so far.
