Default '95 5.2L Engine Swap Concerns

Hey guys, so I'm running the original 5.2L in my '95 1500. I know that '95 was the last year for the OBD1 and '96 was the first year for an OBD2. I wanna swap out my engine this next spring once the holidays are over. I've been looking into the 5.9L and have thought about going with a newer year of the engine. As far as swapping the engine goes, I know that most components of the 5.2 will hook right up to the 5.9L. My concern is the ECU and types of components like that. What components will require upgrading?

Also, I've THOUGHT about the 5.7L Hemi for it as well. Any suggestions/concerns/recommendations are greatly appreciated. I only plan on spending ROUGHLY $4k when I'm finished...
