Switch with led inside?

Hi, I want to add this switch to my circuit. I currently have a switch with no led light inside.
If I add this to my circuit, will I need resistors for my switch? and will I need to redo all the resistors for my circuit?
I currently have 4 LEDs with 680ohms resistors on the circuit. 
thanks

I think it is a neon gas lamp inside. 

The resistor for an led capable of running 250 VAC would be using
25,000 ohms @ 2½ watt Way too big for that little rocker switch.

These things usually have the necessary protection built in.

will it reduce the current/voltage for my leds?
I don't want my Leds to be dimmer.

Without knowing your whole set-up, I can only say "probably not".
