So stock option seems to include a standard handle on one side, and a "knob" of sorts on the other. Can the "knob" be replaced with the handle to have the standard handles on both sides?

Right. In the Hobie video it's mentioned I think that there's primary steering on the right, and secondary steering from the left; and that you can interchange them if you want. Got that. The primary looks like a nice lever, the secondary looks like a knob of some sorts - with a thumb press. What I'm asking is if we can replace the knob with a lever to have a lever on both the left and right? I imagine as you switch from one to the other there may be some 'play' to take up slack on the control lines?

Yes - you can install a second lever, and have 2 at the same time if you desire. (one on either side)
