With my limited knowledge of things electrical, I don’t think you’d be able to use either of those to replace the switch you have now. My guess is that you have to move the toggle in one direction to move the tail light out and the other direction to move it back in. Further I am guessing you want to be able to activate the mechanism from outside the car via a magnet. I don’t think the proximity switch or Hall effect switch has the capability to reverse the polarity to create the opposite motion of the mechanism. But I am no authority on the subject.
Friends don’t let friends drive Fords.
