Default 360 to 318 Engine Swap?

Allllrighty. Well I'm new here. And it feels like home. Hahahaha. I'm a Dodge owner and lover. Never driven anything else.

No for my question.
Please dont think me nieve or anything.

I have a 1999 Ram 1500 5.9 Sport.
Engine has way too many problems for me to bother even trying to fix.
Bought it from a Russian that beat the crap out of it.
I have an old 1996 Ram 5.2 No sport.
Wanted to know if I could drop that engine into my 99.
What all might I need aside from the ECU?
I wanna strip the 5.2 down to the block and heads,
Then fill it in with all the sensors and harness's and the fuel rail/injectors and all that stuff thats already on the trucks 5.9.
Anyone done this?
Anyone know any problems I might run into?
Any suggestions aside from the obvious take it to someone else/do something else?
Thanks.

Mind if I ask what all the 360 would need? If you do use the 318, might look into swapping the heads from the 360 onto it, reusing the intake manifold and everything, just use the short block from the 5.2.
