Default Ef Owner with a Question for a Friend

Hey there. My friend owns a 1997 DX Hatchback (which would make it EK Civic??). He drove it for around 5 months then had a minor right front end accident. He's looking to fix it up peice by peice but including that he's looking for a new engine.

Now I assumed that a B18B would be a good swap for that car, but I work on EF/CRX's so i have nooooo idea what anything entails. Hydrolic Tranny? 2.0L Engines?? AHHH! j/k

He's not looking for super speed, and also an easy swap would be preferrable. I've done EF swaps, so it's not that foreign to me, but I don't know what fits what in these later models. So I guess what I'm looking for is the easiest/cheapest swap, with the best results!

1. Is B18B easy?
2. If not would a D Series Motor be a better idea for this situation?
3. Which D Series is good?
4. Which USDM Cars came with (sed) motor?

Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

D16Y8 came out of a what?

That's the SOHC VTEC block, right? Si? I'm stuck in 1991 so you'll have to forgive me.
