Manual transaxle swap using donor car?

I have a 2000 Focus SE wagon with an auto transaxle, and I want one with a manual transaxle. How hard/expensive would it be to swap the transaxle from an automatic to a manual, if I can find an identical model (from a junkyard, used, etc.) that has the whole transaxle system in good shape? What tools would I need? Would it need to be an identical model, or would I just need to get one with the same engine type?
