"I believe the 2.5 comes standard with VCT. Which means you will have to get an ECU to go with the engine. And since it isn't in a Focus, that will make the swap even harder."
You can throw a set of stock cams and pulleys (after market/stock cams from head without vct) and keep the vct solenoid unplugged. The 2.5 head accepts non-vvt cams, but vvt will not work, if you don't care about vvt no problem.
This is what I'll do. I can post some pictures of the 2.5 block.
