SOURCE: power steering pump
I'd suggest having a shop do the repair. It's not easy and there are many ways to mees up the install. You need a serpentine belt tool, several types of wrenches, and a power steering pump pulley remover/ installer as well as small hands. The high-pressure hose can be difficult to work with and thread onto the new pump. The usual Haynes style manual would give you th complete procedure.

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Windstar AC compressor
They get more than warm, but not excessively hot that you can't touch it. This can be caused by a faulty condenser fan motor, dirty condenser coil even low freon, which is my guess along with a dirty condenser. Check these two issues and if it's not the problem your compressor may be getting ready to die. because of internal issues with the motor windings. Make sure the fan is running to speed, clean the condenser and see if the larger copper pipe to the compressor is ice cold and sweaty, if not you may need freon

while it is possible to perform that swap, the newer 2000+ transmissions will have updated internals and such.
so will it work............. yes.
is it optimal.................no.
