If you don't have the experience I wouldn't recommend you doing the swap yourself. It's pretty straight forward though. Disconnect all the harnesses from the engine, take hood off, radiator, unbolt the exhaust, motor mounts, unbolt tranny, jack car up from the front, get a cherry picker and pic that thing out of there and put in the new one

Try and find a 4.2L engine. They used them in f150's and e150's.
Use your heads and intake on it though.

He can leave the 4.2's heads, just have to change intakes, saves $100 in head gaskets if you know it ran

depending on the miles, I think I would change the gaskets, maybe the bearings also.

Biggest problem I'm having right now it's trying to determine if I need an internally or externally balenced motor, or does it even matter if I'm replacing the whole motor, I just don't want to buy the wrong one

Doesn't matter as long as you have a matching flywheel/flexplate and a harmonic balancer
