Hardwood floor patch (tongue/groove don't match)

I removed a wall in my house and now I need to patch in the rut in the middle of my living room. But the boards on the other side of the wall are opposite. I've decided to pull up the 100 sq ft of boards, turn them 180 and stagger them in with the rest of the house.

tlanticWBConst. posted some links from Hammerzone and hometips.com but how hard is this job? Can I rent a nailer from Home Depot? or should I just hire a professional.

You could cut a groove where there is currently a tongue and then insert a spline to connect to the other side.

This would be a simple patch job for a professional. No need to tear out a 100 ft. a couple boards maybe. Just add boards from the tongue side as you would normally when you get to the last board remove the lower piece of the groove that piece will drop right in or should if the spacing is right you may have to trim the last board. Sand, plane, whatever, glue and face nail sand finish your done.
