Default New enthusiast first project (5.0 swap)

Hey there everyone, not new to the forums but just finally registered.
Was hoping to get some insight on preparation of my Automatic 2000 Ranger XLT super cab 4x4, to a 5.0. I have a Ford Explorer sitting in my driveway it is an XLT '96 V8, that is going to be the source of where I get my engine and other parts if need be. Be warned i am not by any means a mechanically inclined car guy. But I will be by the time this is finished, im open to any advice or ideas on the subject.

To my knowledge there will be an issue with pats? Correct? Your truck has pats system and the donor does not. That's your chipped key

Also the donor motor must be the same year or newer than the Ranger.

Good thing I came here before I started getting into this, With Tyler46's input would it be, for lack of a better word, 'easier' to find an engine with PATS already present?

This is only for emissions testing. If you live in a state that doesn't do emissions, it doesn't matter.
