You certainly have to checkout the trunk. You cannot modify existing
repository content without having a working copy, so there is no other
way to get the changes into trunk.

If you look at the docs again you will see two use case. The second is
about merging two different trees, which is what you are doing. If you
follow the method through you may still get conflicts on merge, if you
(or someone else) modified trunk after you created your branch. In the
Check for Modifications dialog you can use 'Resolve using mine' to
overwrite with your development version.

But if there are just 2 files involved, the easiest way is simply to
overwrite the trunk files with your development versions and commit.
The effect will be exactly the same.
