H23/H22 Build Questions

The engine in my 2000 Lude seized about four months ago. After figuring what I wanted to do, I bought a used H22a4 to swap in as a replacement. The engine I bought had a bad oil pump that was grinding (so there were metal flakes in the oil) and only was able to put out 2 psi of oil pressure at idle (where it should have been around 20 psi). Anyway, I had purchase a warranty with the engine which covered such failure. The auto recycling place swapped that engine with another one. This one was having similar issues with oil pressure, as well as leaking oil from the front of the engine. They want me to pull the engine so that they can come by and pick it up and refund me the money I spent so they don't have to deal with it anymore.

This still leaves me without an engine. So I am now wanting to do a H23/H22 Frankenstein engine. I have read several of the post about doing such a build, but have a couple additional questions.

(1) Will the transmission for the H22 bolt directly to the H23? (If not will a LSD for that transmission work in a H23 transmission?)

(2) Are there any block sensors that are different for the H23? (crank position sensor and such)

(3) Since I am a visual learner, are there any detailed pictures of a H23/H22 build with a list of things to be really careful of?

I am trying to get a H23 short block that has been sleeved and balanced already to start with. I plan on having my H22 head simply ported and polished, and I also still have my old H22 engine that I can salvage parts off of to complete the build.
