You can't modify the camera to take 120-film. The 117-spool is a sibling to
the 120 and 620. You can convert a 120-spool to 117 by grinding the flanges
to match the diameter of the 117.
I have film in my Original Rolleiflex at the moment. I rerolled the film on
a 620-spool and use a 117 takeup spool.
It's best to unload the camera in the darkroom or in a black sack, since the
smaller diameter of the spool flanges makes the roll more sensitive to
light. But however, all of the 120-film fits the 117 spool.
You can modify the camera to take 620 film by making a new winding knob and
spool holding knob. But then you have to reroll all films anyway.
