    You should not have to do any rewiring at all.

    The "main line" typically has enough wires in it to handle 2-8 lines... so your line 2 is using two of them that just won't be used anymore. Your line 1 will remain connected as it is.

    The second line would have been connected to the yellow and black wires. You want to rewire it to the red and green. Unfortunately, I can't say which is which. One is ring and one is tip. Somebody explained here a long time ago. Maybe use the search, phone + ring + tip.
