the twisted pair is the bright line under the wing
This side doesn't have the twisted pair harness, and appears to go into the front of wing.

Wiring won't go from one type to another, that's just not done. Unless you mean there are several cables under the tape, but then it doesn't matter if they're twisted.
I have done this very thing a few times when the required route was across body work or wings, it's quite simple really, remove a chunk of insulation, spread the wires out side by side, re-enclose with some medium to hold the wiring, tape to the surface. It's used more often than you may think. Many instances on race cars require custom wiring, especially on the outside of a car. BTW, if you do this on carbon fiber, it needs to be insulated from the carbon as it's a conductor.

The right one does not attach to the "rib" like the left one. Could be the picture quality, but it certainly appears that way...
Where do you see that?
The cropped pictures above may need to be zoomed as far as you can go
Why should a pressure sensor have tubes? It can be just a very small piezo.
Having been doing data on race cars for 21 years, I've yet to use a piezo for measurement @ the sensing location. Most pressure sensors on body work and such are sensors that use two tubes running out from the sensor, one to a static pressure (a bottle of water for instance), one to the sensing location. The location could be a pitot or a hole with a small "port" to attach the tube to take the pressure reading.
The wire is connected to the "rib" on the right side and my best guess is a strain gauge reading of some sort. The right one, I have no idea. Like I said, it could be the picture angle and quality but it disappears into the wing....
