Swapping An Integra Ls Engine Into My Civic Please

Ok here is the deal guys, I am finally got the engine I am going to swap and the reason why I got it because I got an entire integra that was built engine wise for only $1200, built block and head, etc. etc.

So I want to put this into my 1996 Civic , and here that is not hard to do, Oh by the way the engine is from a 94 Integra LS.

So I hear all the plugs are the same except distributor , needs to be converted to OBD1, and also I was told I needed a Skunk 2 or similar ecu conversion harness, but I was wondering why did I need that harness. If all the plugs are the same and I can run the wiring harness from the engine down to the ECU, instead of using an OBD1 ECU, with the conversion harness, WHY CANT I use an OBD2 ECU from 96+ since it is OBD2 and also since the engines seem to be the same (b18B1) in the 96+ as in the 94, if anyone can help in my dilema I would greatly appreciate it, I really would love to do this swap this weekend, thanks guys
