transmission rebuild/modification questions

I have a few questions about rebuilding and modifying my transmission. Hopefully you guys can help me out. Also, sorry about the long post, but I'm trying to be as detailed as I can to make sure I get everything straight.

First thing I need to know is if all parts are interchangeable between all f/h transmissions? Specifically 2nd gear and 3rd gear? I want to put a prelude vtec 2nd gear and 3rd gear in an accord transmission to get the gearing perfect for the track I race on.

Second thing I need to know is if an accord transmission will fit in the prelude. I remember reading on here that I will need to use a tap to cut some threads for the transmission mount bolt. Is that all that's required to make it fit? My vtec prelude transmission case was damaged by the previous owner, and I figure I might as well use an undamaged accord case rather than try and weld the crack up on the vtec case.

Last thing I need to know is if all the specialty tools such as the mainshaft holder and the preload inspection tools are available anywhere for less money than from honda. Or is there any place I can rent or borrow them from? I don't know if I want to spend hundreds of dollars on specialty tools that I will only use once.
