The brake light switch wont cause the hard shift.The hard shift is caused by either a failing pressure control solenoid in the transmission valve body,the transmission valve body itself at fault needing replaced or debris build up in the transmission valve body with a transmission flush needed to remove the debris.
As for the brake switch it does sound like it needs replaced again since it is broken.
