You don't really want a joint between the lines that is fatter so splicing might or might not work as well as just sewing the two bitter ends together and covering with the rigging tape of your choice.
I also really like to know how my running rigging lines are routed.
DIY makes sense to me.
Unless the sheaves need replacement, DIY makes sense. I used whipping twine, to whip the end of each line, with a connecting loop. Covered it with duct tape (the handyman's secret weapon ) and it went off smoothly. Took longer to scrape off the duct tape.
