Telling Terrell to change the code isn't hard. He would have to know to tell him, though. Terrell was compliant but not offering suggestions, only following orders.
Once again, that doesn't prove that actually changing the code was easy. There's a difference between asking someone to do something and the person in question actually doing it.

And if it takes hardware swaps to change the code, they must have the hardware aboard, else Spock wouldn't worry about the code being changed.
Which still doesn't mean that it's easy to do. They may have had the equipment aboard, but that tells us nothing of how sophisticated the equipment is or what needs to be done for it to actually carry out its intended function. Not everything involves pushing one or two buttons in order for something to happen.
