Yes, you have to pull the transmission. But look it over closely. Most likely the coolant is coming from somewhere else. I have never seen or replaced a bad freeze plug back there. Water can't get to them to rust them out from the outside in. Only if you use water only to cool the engine. Heater hoses and the intake manifold gaskets can cause a leak in this area.
You would be much better off finding another 5.0L engine. It's a big can of worms to swap in a different engine, and not just for the reasons you mentioned. There is the engine wiring harness, the computer, many connections and placement fittings you would have to contend with. Check if the Crown Vic even had the 5.8L as an option. If so, it may be possible with minor modifications, but may be very time-consuming, whereas another 5.0L is just a straight swap-much easier. Whatever you decide, good luck. By the way, I'm not sure your fluid-draining storage idea is very advisable. Many seals (like in the coolant system) could get dry and crack and cause a leak when filled and ran again. An old mechanic once told me never leave the coolant system dry-it leads to rust, scale and corrosion, and dried seals. He even kept his engines that were removed and.stored on the floor topped up with anti-freeze- said he never had a problem with corrosion build-up or dried seals.
for a swap like that a chilton book would cover info for both motors and they cost under 20 bucks. just saying it beats the hell out of guessing at it or taking some schmucks advise from the internet. since your old 5.7 had TBI im hoping the 454 your swapping it with is also a TBI, if not your best bet would probally be to convert to carb but your going to need to replace the fuel system as the 2 high pressure lines that ran the TBI wont work with a carb. if it is TBI your going to need the ECM that came with the 454 as the 350 one is just going to "get confused" and have issues. Since your rig has an older ECM you can remove the Electronic senders and replace them with manual ones to simplify everything ( i have an 89 chevy i built a rat 355 for so ive been through this before) . without knowing exactly the year of the 454 thats about all i can think of to watch out for on that swap, i hope your not trying to mate the 454 to a 4L60, your going to need at least a 4l80 with an upgraded sun shell gear or a heavy duty manual ( at least 10 spline and 12 inch clutch).
