Hello and welcome to just answer.

I hope that this replay comes in time for you and I apologise for the delay in your answer.

The two engines that you have listed are totally different to each other as the injection systems are totally different. To fit the other engine would involve a great deal of work swappping pretty much the entire engine and engine management system including the control unit. The control units would also then need to be coded to your car in order to allow it to start and run.

I think the work involved would end up costing you a lot of money and I would adivse finding the correct engine to fit in to your car.

I hope that this helps and if I can help further please feel free to ask
