Awd Mk3 Focus SE

I currently own a 2014 ford focus se with the DCT while looking at the MTX-75 swap i discovered that the 2002 Jaguar X-type has an awd 5 speed transmission based on the ford mmondeo alled the MTX-75-X. Is it possible to do a manual swap to the MTX-75-X and use the focus rs rear subframe with the focus rs gas tank and a custom drive shaft connecting the MTX-75-X to the rear differential of a 2002 Jaguar X-type?

There are a couple questions I was unable to find on other forums:

Will the 2002 Jaguar X-type rear differential fit inside of the focus RS rear subframe?

Is there more to swapping in an MTX-75-X than the MTX-75?

Are all of the mounting positions for the Focus RS gas tank, and rear subframe the same on the focus SE?

Should I be worried about clearance issues if this swap is possible?

Parts would have to be from a 2002-2005 Jaguar X-type V6 5sp manual transmission.

The subframe and gas tank I am assuming would be closest coming from a 2016 Ford focus RS.

From here cost would like be over $5,000 for parts without labor.

With all these pieces being replaced should I swap in a performance fuel pump, and how would I recalibrate the gas tank sensor for the different gas tank size?

Would it be preferred to have the MTX-75-X rebuilt and/or change gearing ratios?

Also will MTX-75 parts fit for rebuilding an MTX-75-X?

Wouldnt you rather use the focus rs differential instead of the jags?
If you are getting the rs rear assembly for this i would stick to what already fits to limit extra steps to making this possible.
I dont know what the mtx75x looks like but i would imagine the part for the rear driveshaft will encounter clearance issues with the floorpan of the focus.
