318i to M3

So feel free to direct me to an old thread, cause im sure theres one, but if not, here it is.
Im thinking of throwing in an E36 M3 motor in my E30. Ive heard that its the best motor for the swap. I figured that id come to the best bimmer minds on the web before I set this motion in stone. I really dont know where to start with the questions, there are so many, but, first off, a few things im so unsure of,

does the chassis need to be heavily modified(84 model btw)

motor mounts???

Xmission fitment??? Custom linkages for shifter??? Do I need a custom drive shaft?

Is this easy enough for DIY, or am I better off seeking professional help.

what are common problems that come up with this job.

Any feedback is appreciated.
