Yes, I frequently use 'bad' string segments as sources of spares as most are usually still good. If the individual lamps are not removable then I splice them in by stripping 1cm off each wire, twisting them end to end and soldering, and finally covering the splice with a 2.5cm piece of dual-wall adhesive-lined black heatshrink tubing to seal the connection .

The corroded offcorroded-off LED leads used to be a big problem back when they used steel leadframes. For some years now they've been using brass so that shouldn't be an issue with newer strings. This can be verified by by pulling out an LED (if removable) and seeing if a magnet sticks to the LED wire leads.
