Changing a mortise lock with a cylinder good lock

I am an entire novice at DIY, so sorry if I am lacking one thing apparent! I’ve executed some analysis however can solely discover the beneath two as viable choices, simply uncertain if the viability and safety.

Simply moved into a brand new home and I am attempting to plot a method to set up this lock, which isn’t a mortise lock: [](

I do know that good mortise locks exist, however they both are usually not appropriate with House Assistant, which is essential to me, or embody a lever which I do not want as a result of my door has a pull deal with that I would favor to maintain, plus I haven’t got a doorbell so that is form of a 2-in-1 resolution.

My query is, what’s one of the simplest ways so far as safety is anxious to go about changing the door, which has the mortise, to a door that can help this lock? Can I get away with merely eradicating the mortise lock and utilizing a door wrap plate ([like this](, or ought to I fill the opening with wooden + glue, then lower the cylinder out?
