No one has successfully swapped a seventh gen (2001-2005) civic trans onto a fifth/sixth gen engine, or earlier trans onto seventh gen engine.

There is very little reason to do this swap, so very few people do it. Shift linkages are very different (cables vs. rods), so you can't easily swap one to the other. But, if you try putting a D16 in a 7th gen Civic or a D17 in a 6th gen Civic, the engines and tranny will bolt up fine.

There's a lot of misinformation on this out there, so it's hard to find out the details. The link above includes pictures of the D17 with a D16 tranny.
