Default Engine swap

Well the motor recently blew on my 01 1500 5 speed.

Im looking at 2 different options now. Either a 5.9 swap or a 5.2 i found out of a 98 jeep cherokee. My questions are;
1) What all do I need to go along with the 5.9 for it to be ready in my dodge that had the 5.2?
2) Is the engine the same from the jeep as the rams?
3) The 5.2 has 150k miles and they are asking 300$, is that a good deal?
