Its almost easier to get a wing kit and build anew wing than to change the dihedral if they glued the wings together.

If it comes apart its not a lot easier...

You have to separate the wing panels. That means a razor saw if the wings are glued together.
Then remove the center sheeting to access the dihedral bracing structure.
Saw out the braces, preferably without cutting the spars

Then block the wings in the desired alignment
Cut the new dihedral bracing pieces and check their fit (without glue)

Complete the reassembly and re-sheeting then fix the covering.

With a lot of building experience behind me... I'd just build a new wing from scratch...

Note that some of your issue can be corrected by just putting on larger ailerons and adjusting "differential throw"
this would be simple and quick.
