Should the trany mount match or do I need to move the crossmember back?

Just copy what they did on your '87. You are asking questions that we cannot answer for you, we are not familiar with your swap and no two swaps are the same.

If you are going from a 2wd truck to 4wd, you will need to get a 4x4 trans & transfer case for a V8 (or variant of such), you cannot use the '93s stock transmission. It won't bolt up and it would not be strong enough. Wheel bases and placements are likely going to change your drive shaft lengths.

But yes, it will fit no problem.

Well I'm going from a extended cab 87 ford ranger 4x4 to a 93 extended cab 4x4 I have an auto and I already have a hole in the floor i should be able to put the trany from the 87 into the 93 using the 87 design right?

As far as I know, the cross members are different - I am not sure what year the change over is though, it's possible they are the same, will just have to look. But shouldn't be too hard to adapt, all depends on how the swapper did things. Not familiar with all of the different wheel bases throughout the years, but something to keep in mind. Measure from back wheel to front wheel. That will affect exhaust also. If already 4x4, then you should be set.
