No you cannot bolt the DOHC B20A head onto the A20 block.
Well you can but its gonna take alot of work and money to get that to happen. Why don't you just buy the whole engine swap and just have a complete DOHC motor. It will practically bolt in but you need i a mount or two. but its the easiest swap in our cars to say the least

Honda B20A engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
