If you are able do download the patch you can patch it.
Simple as that.

Please read the info in the post for the difference between patch and update.

Yes I can download the Method2 attached zip patch as I am a customer (not having the license active though).

Also where I can check if the extracted zip patch was successfully applied?

Just check the date of the file, before and after overwriting the file.

It's fine then, however inside the admincp when doing the file health check it lists those files as not having the default content. I suppose this shouldn't be a problem, right? As it shows the files got updated.

That's right. If you can't upgrade to the latest version and use the patch instead, it will show as having unexpected contents since it expects the default content for the version you're running.
