So I was wondering if I could swap a set of power doors onto my manual doored forcus and easily make all the power windows and locks work? I am really tired of reaching across the car to role down the window if not then what is the easiest way. Thanks and if this is in the wrong place please let me know

Hey flopp, I wanted the same thing... I will say this.
There are several paths that you can take to get your results.
1. Buy a new car!
2. You can buy the aftermarket parts and install them yourself.
3. You can buy the actual parts and install them into your car.
Several months ago I decided the same thing, I wanted a car I could drive with all 4 windows down. So I took choice 3 and I bought the parts online, or from a car yard. I had to buy a interior wire harness. It goes from under the dash to the trunk. The whole interior. Unless your harness has the full set of wires, then you are lucky.
I then installed the harness and power locks. Worked great. I have the power regulators on order, some in and another I need to buy, I also have the two mirrors and switch. Its cost me less than $400 and its really just a 8h or day job depending on it.
I wanted the standard (OEM) switches not the aftermarket ones. All I have left is to finish the project and wire and light the switches, then on to the next project. If you need some assistance please message me, I can help you out. Good Luck!
