Contacts in your ignition switch are corroded. Some can be cleaned but some just have to be replaced at times.

If your old engine/control has the same 'options' as the30hp, yes everything is compatible... (Electric start or trim )
The throttle and shift cables are allways compatible...

My outboard motor doesn't idle at low rpm's, it cuts off when put into gear.


Could be several reasons for this, poor quality / dirty gas, restricted fuel line either partially blocked or pinched at some point come straight to my mind.

My mercury 9.8 hp 110 starts but only stays running at half choke


Sounds like it needs a fuel pump kit, and possibly also a carby kit.

take photos as you are pulling the fuel pump or carby apart, or get a service manual for the outboard. The dealer might photocopy the pages you need if you ask nicely.
