I dropped my bike at a weird angle and the clutch lever on my handlebar broke in half, I tried to just replace the clutch lever but the impact warped the bolt so now the lever and assembly are stuck together.

13 is warped/stuck inside it's hole making it so I can't just replace the lever

I ordered a new clutch lever + assembly but I don't know how to get the old one off/the new one on... do I have to remove the handlebars?

or do I have to remove the grip/the light switches?

Yes. The grip is going to take some work to remove. I would recommend an air compressor and a blow-off tip shoved between the grip and bars to help coax the grip into sliding off. That, or a can of air (like for cleaning a pc keyboard) will do.
Or you could squirt a little wd-40 between the grip and bar. Just a little goes a long way. I've used this to help grips slide back on as well, but use just a very small amount.
