Can any bog-standard hobbyist or repair girl successfully and safely
replace these with similarly marked caps without knowing anything about
what the circuit design does or needs in terms of other parameters?

I wouldn't hesitate replacing electrolytics in linears, but would be
reluctant to do so in a SMPS without being more skilled in the field.
