Yes, the motor mount must come off to replace the serpentine belt on the 3.0 6 cylinder motors. Not as daunting a task as it may seem, just requires a jack and block of wood under the oil pan to support the motor.

There are no V8s that will bolt right up to your existing drivetrain. The swap would require modification of motor mounts, heater fan box or firewall depending on your motor of choice, a larger capacity radiator, splicing into your existing wiring, a v8 transmission (ie C4 if automatic) and a v8 transfer case if 4x4, and a minimum of a 8.8" ford rear end (preferably a 9" ford rear end)/dana 44 front end to handle the power.
There are many books out there specifically detailing how to swap a v8 into a Ford Ranger. Refer to this site if you are really interested in undertaking this project: http://www.jamesduff.com/broncoII/v8conversion.html
