Swapping 351C into 68 Coupe??

Hullo, I'm contemplating of slotting a 351 cleveland from a Fairlane 500
into my 68 coupe but wondering:
1. Would it fit with the original cast iron headers.
2. Could I use the original 289 engine mounting brackets. (They however look
different).
3. Once installed can I swap the 2 barrel with my 4 barrel (would the hood
close?).
4. How difficult would it be to change spark plugs?

Thanks in advance.
