The easy part is the metadata. You just set up the 2 extra series, and then add the books to them.

The main work is changing the covers, and editing the front matter of the books.

It's not inherently difficult though.

I had a trilogy which I wrongly thought was on it's own, then inserted it into the middle of another incomplete trilogy. There were no problems doing it. And the new series feature makes that part of it much simpler to control.

They will only flip out if things don't match. As long as series meta = cover = front matter, they're cool with it.
