Default Can I use other brand clutch liners?

I want to re-line my 2 bells on a V2, would I be able to use more commonly available ones like a hirobo sceadu perhaps?

I don't see why not, its nothing special.

Wrap the clutch with 2 layers of electrical tape and see if its a snug fit with the liner you want to use.

Clean the bell completely of old adhesive
Scuff the gluing surface of the new liner with sandpaper
Take the clutch and wrap one layer of electrical tape around the clutch, with the edge of the tape even with the top of the clutch, and the tape carefully cut to butt up end to end, not overlapping.
Do the same thing again so that you have 2 layers, again, butted end to end, no overlap
Glue the liner and clean up any excess glue, I use 30 minute epoxy, some guys use JBWeld but epoxy works fine and is easier to clean up
While the glue is driving shove the taped up clutch into the bell.

When its dry, remove the clutch, remove the tape, clean any adhesive residue off the clutch shoes with alcohol, and VOILA perfect clutch to liner clearance!
