Not sure what you mean by manually. Your goal is to change the gfx. Which can only be done with zcompress in a combination with yy-chr. Take a closer look at Alttp and Parallel worlds overworlds. PW has a lot bigger house and no swamp tiles that are in Alttp, thus you can not "just" switch from one tiles to others. SePH rearranged the individual gfx tilesets drastically. There's now a roof of the bigger house where a stomp used to be etc. Also, the HUD, menu and title screen are changed in PW. Bringing the entire gfx from PW to Alttp would therefore be fatal for the game.
Things you can do:
Try to change the bush only (the location and space is compatible betwen Alttp and PW).
Then move on small rocks, later the tree (requires palette changes and small tile changes) and so on.
Some small sprites like soldiers head is also compatible.
Houses and Walls, however, are out of reach (to complicated new structure of the gfx to be "just" switched). Similar with Hyrule castle (PW has new diagonal wall which is not in Alttp).
Dark world areas are not compatible and can not be switched. Changing dark world to PW would require the new drawing of the entire world, similar to ice worlds of the PW.
