Default USDM J30A5 to JDM J30A swap

Trying to help my uncle out. Recently swapped out a blown USDM J30A5 motor (2006 Accord) with a JDM J30A motor. The issue he's having include:

Vtec wiring from USDM engine harness to JDM Vtec solenoid.
Knock sensor location (different location and different wiring).

He's searched and I've spent about an hour searching but can't find any data on wiring / splicing or compatibility.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can't you just swap the knock sensor and vtec solenoid from the old engine to the new one?

Different location- different sensors so it's not swappable.
