The key needs to be programmed using Honda Diagnostic equipment. Without the proper equipment you can not do it.
Do you have the key to the old switch? If you do then you can hook up the smaller connectors to it and start the car with the other switch, or remove the electrical portion and turn that with a screwdriver to start it.
