Anything is possible if you throw enough time and money at it. It’s not a popular modification on XJ40 though, so there will not be a great deal of information on it.
But it will be popular on other cars I suppose (more modern?), so if you can apply that information across, you could find a way.
Clearly it will be an aftermarket kit, and it should come with some kind of instructions.

Yes you can with universal kit though probably needs to be installed by qualified auto electrician and may even invalidate your car insurance as will be classed as a modified vehicle

I don’t think would be worth the effort or expense

Good point about the insurance. Though many insurers will cover a modified car of course, but you should check before proceeding with any mods.

Thanks for the information. sorry for the late post. I have found out the hard way in -10* F (-23*C) Weather. That my Jag Does not love the cold. And doesn't heat up as well

What time is the issue there?

XJ40 went through extensive cold weather testing in Canada before it was launched, so in theory it should be able to handle the cold. Though I don’t know exactly what low temperature they were tested to, I would hope they could handle -23.
