    What are your criteria for "best"? The H22 is a GOOD swap, and very easy, but there are obviously better motors out there...

    Yes, and yes, although using an H22 tranny would result in better gear ratios...

    Make sure you get an OBDII and not OBDI motor. It is all about compatibility between the engine, ECU, and wiring harness. You will save many headaches and lots of work/money by doing this. If you grab a 97+ Prelude engine You will be golden.
