It will probably be easiest to change out the wiring harness, the ECU and sensors are quite different. I'm not familiar with the auto boxes, I know there is what is called an Auto Lock Out function that is usually controlled by the ECU. Someone else should know if you can run the auto without this.

Contact Brad at Trail Tough... he does alot of these conversions and is very knowledgeable.
First question I have is do you have a donor vehicle? Just the engine & tranny or what?
I know that you can buy the modified harnesses but they can be expensive... otheer thing is the OBDI vs OBDII systems. The OBDII is the standard on the 96 and newer whereas the OBDI is 95 and earlier....

differences are the OBDII have twice as many sensors and if you're in Kaliforny emissions controls are stringent and OBDI is far easier to smog... and the OBDII engines can be changed to accept the OBDI ECU and harness... that's what I did with my 96... made it into a 95
