Normally the internal doors can be adjusted as the gaps arent always perfect, best to see on the doors specs at the store, but most of them can be trimmed 5mm. If you trim too much you could weaken the frame and the weight of the door card would pull it out if it.s hinges

That's nearly a couple of cm , 20mm. I would trim the door to the right size and re- lip the leading edge with hardwood.

Only If the internal door is of a good quality, then I would say it was possible to trim to this size. The hinges also play a role in strength, so good quality hinges will help.
