There will likely be no holes which aren't sealed from the elements. Most wiring looms which run through the firewall are shrouded in a rubber boot, which prevents water ingress to the passenger compartment. If you need to run one or two wires through to the inside of the car, then I suggest taping those wires together, and to a stipp piece of steel rod, or screwdriver. Then using a sharp craft knife, slightly piercing one of those rubber firewall bungs/boots and then force your wiring through. Do be careful not to slice or damage any existing wiring though.

Good luck!

Can a 94 chevy cheyenne transmission interchange with a 97 chevy silverado tranmission

Will it physically fit? yes. Will it be a direct replacement any everything hook right up and plug right in? If we are talking about an automatic then no. 1994's wiring was completely different than the 1997. Can it be made to work? possible, but I believe it would be more trouble trying to make it work than if the correct transmission were located and installed. If it is a cost issue where he has a good trans out of a 1994 he might see if a salvage yard will do some partial trading for the correct trans.
