...range reconfig time is around 2 weeks.

Is the above true for any possible succession of launch campaigns at Kourou?  Or only between two launch campaigns using the same launch vehicle?

The current scheduled launch cadence is close to every two weeks...
Planned launches:
Date - Satellite(s) - Rocket - Launch Site - Time (UTC)

2018
October    19   20 - BepiColombo-MPO, BepiColombo-MMO - Ariane 5 ECA (VA245) - Kourou ELA-3 - 01:45:28 (or NLT November 29)
NET November 7 - MetOp-C - Soyuz-ST-B/Fregat-M (VS19) - Kourou ELS - 00:47:51
NET November 20  2019  - Mohammed VI-B (MN35-B, Morocco EO Sat 2) - Vega (VV13) - Kourou ZLV
December 4 - GSAT-11, GEO-KOMPSAT-2A (GK2A, Cheollian 2A) - Ariane 5 ECA (VA246) - Kourou ELA-3
December 14 (TBD)  17 - CSO 1 (Composante Spatiale Optique-1) - Soyuz ST-A/Fregat (VS20) - Kourou ELS - 02:03
NET December 15 - GSAT-31 - Ariane 5 ECA - Kourou ELA-3 (or Early 2019)
NET December 15 - HS4-SGS1 (Hellas-Sat-4, SaudiGeoSat-1) - Ariane 5 ECA  - Kourou ELA-3 (or Early 2019)

Changes on September 22nd
Changes on September 23rd
Changes on September 29th
Changes on October 3rd
Changes on October 4th
Changes on October 5th

Noting: There are four French public holidays between now (October 5) and January 2:
All Saints' Day on November 1
Armistice Day on November 11
Christmas Day on December 25
New Year's Day on January 1

(The last three are also Federal holidays here in the USA.)
***

Are public holidays "paid days off" for the various employees working at Kourou?
If one does have to work the holiday, does one get paid extra?

The 11th of November is a Sunday.

The whole CSG will be closed between Christmas and the 1st of January (24/12 to 02/01)

That's exactly how it works.

Is it plausible that a VA247, consisting of HS4-SGS1 and GSAT-31, could process and then launch in late December?

The 2nd of November being a Friday, it's currently scheduled as a day off. Of course, if necessary, it might become a working day for some people (the same is true for Saturdays, off by default, but if the campaign is running late, some people will work)

The 11th of November is a Sunday.

The whole CSG will be closed between Christmas and the 1st of January (24/12 to 02/01)
<snip>

Apparently not, unless the hypothetical VA247 takes the place of VS20.

Might there be a small possibility that CSO could be prepared for launch by mid/end November?
If this is the case, the Soyuz CSO-1 launch could swap launch period slot with Vega VV12.
In this case the Soyuz launch crew could fly to Kourou for two launches.

Stephane Isreal said in the BepiColombo launch-broadcast that VS19 is scheduled for 6th November but they "still need to hear from Roscocmos"

Any signs of launch campaign hardware, or Moroccans, in French Guiana for VV13?
(We're about 1 month from the NET launch date.)

Quote
Between October 10-12, scientists from China’s space programme and the European Space Agency (ESA) conducted a review of China-ESA joint mission SMILE. During the review, they confirmed that the SMILE spacecraft will be launched in 2021 on Arianespace’s upcoming Vega-C rocket, after choosing between the Soyuz, Ariane 6, and Vega-C.

SpacePharma SA selected ISIS – Innovative Solutions In Space B.V. to build the platform and integrate the payload for their next mission, DIDO-3, with support for satellite commissioning after launch. The agreement is a continuation of a fruitful cooperation to realize SpacePharma’s previous satellite, named DIDO-2, which was the proof of concept mission to test miniaturized end-to-end pharmaceutical laboratory in space, allowing microgravity conditions.
