Without wheel speed sensors and ABS pump, you will not have ABS or traction control. You might want to look for the wiring harnesses, however if the motor was changed, then the ECU is changed, and Ford computer modules have to be programmed in- it's not as simple as just plugging it up to get it to work. Maybe your older car had that option, and then when the engine and ECU were changed- you lost that. It could also be that someone changed that dash section with one that had the switch, but the switch is not wired, and was never wired.

The VSS in the transmission does the speedometer, and would provide an input for the ABS/TC computer, but it won't work without wheel speed sensors.
