ohhhh.... where to start.. ok here goes:

well, if youre going with a d16(y8, im assuming?) since you already have the correct mounts in the corect locations, it should go with relative ease.

as far as wiring for vtec, i couldn't tell you, but i'm sure you could find a write-up on this, if i remeber correctly though its like 5? wires i think. someone help me out on this...
if the tranny is damadged how much should another cost and where can i find one cause i need one for a 96 and up
costs can vary greatly, anywhere from 50-1000 $ depending on what route you go. you can find them on ebay, at a junkyard, or find someone to rebuild it in your CT area.
could i put a 4 speed tranny in there
i honestly hope you are kidding, unless you want to go (or stay) automatic, then yes, but there will be extra wiring involved if you dont have an auto, you will have to change ecu's... i believe you could follow any of the auto-manual writeups in reverse and do this pretty simply if starting with a manual

ok, well i looked and found that it is 4 wires, not five... secondary O2 sensor, vtec soleniod valve, vtec oil pressure(+ the ground, so i guess technically it is 5 wires :) ), and the knock sensor.

in the article i read they say it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to do...
