Yes, you just have to get it unlocked and you can use it on a duratec.

Do you know the original owner, so they can:
1) Flash their car back to stock to unlock it.
2) Use the SCT software to unlock it via a PC or Laptop
^^^If not...count on ~$100 to get SCT to do it.

Then...you're going to have to find a tuner (Focus Power or Focus Sport comes to mind) to make a 2.3 tune for you.
^^^More $$
The SVT tune will not work at all.
You need a tune designed for your ECU code.

thanks for expanding on that, I was in a hurry here at work and just posted up a quick answer.

You will need a tune specific to your ECU code.
