It has been done before, it looks really ugly though with the holes deleted...
It may look better if you have them as air channels, but our cars really don't look that good in my opinion with two headlights...
(I'd link a photo but my phone is being stupid and won't let me)
Our bulbs are two separate bulbs in separate housings.

Delete the low beams, have only the high beams. It would be very exotic and sexy looking, kind of like a porsche or an austin healey frog-eyed sprite

Delete only looks bad if its been smoothed over but if you put it to use then it looks great.
However unless your car is modified, its pretty difficult to pull off the look.
High and low wires are separate with no adjustments. Just on or off. Easy to relocate the wires to the inners or outers.
Here's mine with the inners as cold air feed and oil cooler feed.
