ok so i have a d16y5 engine on my 96 civic hx which i believe is a vtec-e and i have laying around a d16y7 non vtec engine and a ex 5spd transmission so i wanted to do a mini me swap but i want to know what i need to do this?

will the d16y7 block fit on to my d16y5 head and will the ecu from my hx work
just fine for this swap?

will there be any problems with using the d16y7 block and d16y5 head
and ex tranny?

will everything bolt on just fine or do i need any modifications?

what timing belt should i use?

which spark plugs should i use?

i am relatively new to this so please any info with details will be appreciated it thank you

any help will be appreciated also any pics showing something like this
thank you so much.

Yes it will all physically bolt together, but why do you want to use a Y7 bottom? I ask because the only difference between a y7 bottom and a y5 bottom is the oil pan and the pistons. Timing belt is the same between Y5, Y7, and Y8, use Y5 spark plugs, and the Y5 ECU won't have an issue as long as all the Y5 sensors are present.
