The doorknobs on our parlor doors are not the right ones. They're actual knobs which prevent the doors from hiding in the wall openings (cheap/dumb reno job from previous owner). Is there a way to replace those knobs with the proper hardware without having to replace the pocket doors, or is it not worth the repair? The doors themselves aren't special per se, no glass or ornate woodwork; so replacing them wouldn't be out of the question either.

After looking LONG and HARD for months for something antique, decent and affordable for my brownstone pocket doors I found the following site:
They are a random small shop in SC that has awesome reproductions. I purchase for $25 each their Bronze Lorraine Pocket door pulls - comes with key hole or without. Also got the Double Pocket door locks (around $200 for set). Everything matched the style of the brownstone so I was extremely happy. My doors were new solid oak pocket doors so my contractor had to saw the holes to make space to fit the locks. The Lorraine Pocket door pull plates also required sawing a hole for the keyhole and embedded pull area. I'll link pics of the parlor floor apartment here - browse to see the finished product on the interior room pocket doors of my parlor floor rental in Windsor Terrace.

Just go to Ebay and search for pocket door hardware. Lots of them come up.

Just have to add that replacing the hardware is easy, but replacing the doors themselves is extremely difficult and can be costly -- it's difficult to find exactly the size you need.
