Default 5.9 build up to drop into my 1500 sport

Hey everyone, I got this idea the other day to get a junkyard 5.9 and build it up to make anywheres from 400-450 hp and take my engine out and put the badass one in lol. I have a lot of questions so here we go lol

What year and truck size should the doner truck/van be? ( my truck being a 2000 1500 sport with the 5.9)

I want to do a pretty decent cam and a 408 or a 410 stroker kit. What will I have to do with the PCM so it will run?

What intake manifold should I get or should I do a kegger mod?

Shat should I do with the heads?

Should I do stiffer springs and different rockers?

What else do I need to reach my goal?

Where shoudl I get all this stuff? lol

I want to try and do all this on a budget and I want this to be as close to a plug and play deal as possible. I already have headers and a TB with the TB mod.

Thanks for reading guys! Ik its a lot of stuff but if someone could help me out that would be awesome!!
