Would ראש השנה שמח not also be correct? or is it only in the jewish festival context , and not in general for happy new year?

That's specifically for Rosh Hashana. But שנה טובה can be used in both cases.

Interesting how Jews don't wish people a "happy" New Year. Goes along with starting the year in shul, not drunk in Times Square.
