I've spoken with Cor directly and he has confirmed that in addition to needing the plug adapter to go from 13+ to 11/12, there are also physical fitment problems with the battery cover (the plastic that goes over the battery under the car). The battery cover was changed slightly, so if you intend to do a pack/pack replacement, you should also get the cover. Additionally, the older VCM (11/12) may have compatibility issues with the newer battery packs, according to EVSEnhanced.
The only guaranteed to work options are:
1) Open both packs and replace all of the cells from a newer pack into the original 11/12 pack, keeping the BMS and wiring harnesses from 11/12. This only
works if the pack is 24kWh. You cannot use 30/40 kWh cells. OR
2) Get a pack for the same model year and battery heater combination. Use EVSEnhanced's tool to re-pair the battery pack to the car. OR
3) Buy a replacement pack from Nissan. They will ensure that the pack is compatible with your car and comes with the wiring harness adapter.
If you go with option 3, it's very expensive, but it will NOT come with 2011 cells. All new packs purchased from Nissan use the latest battery chemistry and carry the standard 8 year battery warranty (and 5 year capacity warranty).
