Well, I partly agree with you Lutty, but partly disagree. For example, I play guitar in a covers band. We play Heaven & Hell and Neon Knights by Black Sabbath and I do a very creditable job of covering the Iommi parts. That clearly does not mean I could cover Iommi's parts in Sabbath!! It's one thing to be able to replicate a song or two by any given player, but it's another entirely to be so totally immersed in their work to actually 'replace' them and, in effect, 'become' them in terms of style, especially when their style is so unique as that of The Edge.
Sambora is relatively easy to copy if one can play blues-rock and if one knows a few fancy whammy and tapping tricks, so, yeah, replacing him guitar-wise in Bon Jovi is fairly easy. Vocally it's another matter. I can't think of any other player who could just step into U2 as so much of The Edge's sound is reliant on his unique blend of FX, especially from Unforgettable Fire era onwards...
