Not easily. Unless you have a vast knowledge of engine building and some spare cash, it's a better bet to do a full H22 swap.
What exactly is difficult about putting an h22 head & intake manifold on the f22b1 bottom end. I compared the head gasket part #'s and both the h22 and f22b1 had the same part #. What else is different? I currently have a h22 tranny on my f22b1 engine so I know I won't need to change axle's just the head, intake manifold, and ecu, and a couple of wires. Im I correct or am I missing something?
the head won't just botl on. there is machining that needs to be done, and head stud positions moved.
Yeah, what he said. I'm also not sure what you need in the way of a timing belt, crank pulley, etc.

They're a shop in Ft. Collins, Colorado, and they've put an H22 head onto an F23 bottom end. I don't think they're any info on their website, but feel free to give them a call if you're getting serious and want some info.
sohc and dohc heads cannot be switched easily. they arent worth the money when it gets down to it. Just get the whole swap.
