Unhappy Is f22b for f22a1 Possible? (Both non Vtec)

My 93 accord lx blew a head gasket so Im concidering making a swap, is this even practical and is it worth it?
Rather than rebuilding an engine with 197+k miles I'm trying to get my hands on a low milage JDM Engine and simply droping it in. These are the problems(1) finding a F22a1 that I feel comfortable buying(2) some thing that comes with a warranty(3) that I don't have to pay $200 more to ship.
So here's the question, " How difficult would it be to swap my F22a1 for a F22b? According to the guy at JSA motors"we dont' have the f22a1, but we have the f22b engine in stock. You can install the f22b and simply change some connectors or the intake and should work just fine" , is this realy true or is he trying to pull a fast one on me? I'm not trying to spend any unnecessary money especially since i would have all the parts necessary from my old engine even if I were to get some thing as bare as a long black.
Would I need a new Ecu , harness, engine mount or transmission adaptors or is it realy as streight forward as an intake? Or do you know were I can get a good f22a1 within 4 hours driving distance of NJ ?
