Over here they are not available, and absolutely no one can perform the task in their own home due to lack of space - tools - skill and interest.

Even if one did, the bureaucracy would be prohibitive.
In the USA engine swaps are illegal on any vehicle made in the last 40 years or so but it is not enforced by the federal government. Instead enforcement is at the state level and the rules vary. Where I live vehicles are inspected every 2 years so I would have to swap the original engine back in to pass inspection. (Some people actually do this!)
