You can *always* convert any use of \addInstrumentDefinition
/ \instrumentSwitch by turning

\addInstrumentDefinition "x" #`((prop1 . val1) (prop2 . ,val2) ...)
\instrumentSwitch "x"


x = {
   \set Staff.prop1 = #'val1
   \set Staff.prop2 = #val2
Ah! I clearly didn’t understand what was happening “behind the scenes”…

Okay… For now, I’ll say that’s settled.

Yeah, we're discussing two things that have been deprecated
together but are separate. One is \addInstrumentDefinition
+ \instrumentSwitch, which sounds like it helps with switching
instruments but is actually both completely generic and
close to useless, the other is instrumentCueName +
Instrument_switch_engraver + InstrumentSwitch.

Next thing to settle: How best to handle multi-instrumental players’ music.

(I didn't try to understand that part of the discussion yet.)
