Help ASAP:will 96/97 power train exchange?

I have a really nice 96 Eldorado with blown head gaskets and I have a chance to get a good deal on a wrecked 97 STS with a good power train and very low milage. I am wondering if the engine, trans, cradle and all will exchange between the two vehicles of if I have to pull the engine and swap it out?

Thanks a

The STS is a VIN 9 engine. Which Eldo do you have? I think the ETC had a VIN 9, but the base Eldo had a VIN Y. You can't mix the two.
