Turbo installation questions

I'm getting ready to install a turbo charger in my 2001 ZX3 and i have a few concerns before i actually go through with it.

First, I'm concerned with the fact that my focus is an automatic and I'm wanting to know what all is required of the ECU and how to reprogram/flash it. can I just buy a chip off Ebay or what?

Second, I have seen threads on this site that have stated that a turbo will ruin an automatic transmission. I don't really know what to think about this because i don't plan on running more than 8 pounds of boost.

Basically, I just want to know what is REQUIRED other than the piping, manifold, downpipe, wastegate, etc.
