Helpful! 
You change the contents of whatever the modela and modelb boxes are to N_RepSold. So you change them both to N_RepSold.

Yes you do have to save over them although if you wish them to be compatible with other mods then you must use TSL Patcher (which works for both games despite the name) which simply appends/changes the lines you need without completely replacing it meaning it automatically updates your .2da files with entries from multiple mods although for your stuff you can just save over it.

You can either copy the Republic Soldier line, paste it as a new line and change it around to be what you want, or copy and paste N_RepSold into each box.

This is probably the easiest way to do it, unless you're only wanting like one thing different. Like for Decklan, I just copied Carth's line, since I'm using his underwear for Decklan, and then pasted his line in place of Decklan's and changed his row number, head and clothing to fit my character.

Okay, let me do it and screenshot it so you'll know ^_^ I'll come back and edit this in a few minutes with pictures

Okay, so first highlight the line you want by clicking in the little gray box next to the line number
Show spoiler


Then right-click on the gray box and select copy
Show spoiler


Then you go down to the very bottom and there's an entire row of blank... just write a random number in the row number line, so that it opens up the ability to paste a new line (it'll be over written in a bit so it doesn't matter what number)
Show spoiler


Now right click in the gray box next to the number your wrote and click paste row
Show spoiler


Now again, you change the row number to 509 (or whatever number is next if you're modding a mod with Appearance.2a changes...)
Show spoiler


Then you save the Appearance.2da and there you go
