I know I can use the Delta SDC as well to change to a Delta flight, but the only Delta flight with availability tomorrow is the 6PM flight which only saves me around an hour.

And after reading the link above, it appears the $25 fee may be waived for A class tickets, which is what I appear to be booked on.
Yes, this should be possible, even on a DL 006 ticket. You can request to change as early as 6 hours prior to your desired flight, so to switch to the 9:40 AM flight, you can attempt to change as early as 3:40 AM.

The $25 fee will be waived since you are traveling in A class. You will only be able to change to the flight if there is still F space available on your desired flight; there is no standby option.

Great way to get some extra time in Hawaii!
