    1. Welcome to Hondaswap
    2. Stop posting in weird fonts and colors- it's hard to read
    3. Yes you can. You have a DX, so you need to perform a DPFI to MPFI swap (search for it on the site), add VTEC, then decide how you want to take care of engine management- run the non-OBD MPFI electronics (your year) with the VTEC added on somehow, or convert to OBD1 or OBD2 and run newer hardware. All versions have been done many times.

    like they said above it will fit ur stock motor is a d series, u can run the stock tranny which is a cable transmission with the y8 or u can run the transmission that came with it but it hydraulic and you will have to hook up the hydraulic setup. The dpfi wiring to mpfi is real easy and the vtec wiring isn't hard either...as far doing the swap just search through HS it is full of information, there are a lot of good write ups on here, read them and don't be afraid to ask questions that u have.

    wow.. are you 14?

    "with a v vtech in it"? seriously? It's vtec not vtech, vtak, vtek, or any other variation. the engine itself utilizes vtec ok. so saying it has a vtec, without including engine, motor, or warp drive afterwards, just sounds ridiculous.

    yes you can install a y8 engine in your car, and you can also install a honda accord f-series engine in your car if you so choose. the y8 is going to be easier however.

    ...I think you need to read a little more about d-series hondas before you do major work on one. Vtec stands for Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control. A d16z6 is an engine found in 1992-1995 Honda Civic Si's or Ex's and can bolt up to your transmission but Hydro's are nice to have. You can check out Rywire.com and find conversion kits to make the wiring easier also.

    Look at this site. It'll probably help you if you know how to read :) I think your best bet is to get a jdm obd0 b16a if you want "v tech". But considering you don't sound to bright, i'd suggest you stick with the d series. By the way, period's and comma's would make it alot easier for us to read what you're trying to say.
