Going to be lots of work, and parts collecting. But sure, it can be done.
Your best bet will be to find a donor truck, and strip it of everything you will need.

Could i strip the parts from a gas truck or would it have to be another powerstroke? What all would i need. Compressor, condenser, heat control panel, wiring. Would i have to change the air ducts at all?

I feel like everything except the way the compressor mounts would be the same but I'm not sure

You can use some parts from a Gas truck

There's a good chance the condensor will be different, at least the intermediate mounting plates between it and the radiator support.
Hoses are likely different. The large Suction hose/short high pressure assemly is motor specific(Driver side and firewall), but the small high pressure side may be the same as Gas applications(passenger side.)

You'll probably need the evaporator core case cover and core gasket as it has the holes for the evaporator lines.
If your reusing parts, definitely get a new accumulator.
You won't need to do anything with the dash other than swapping in the AC equipped control head, make sure it is from a 1995-1997 truck.
There's a TSB about a change Ford did around 1994 with the valving to prevent a frosty windshield when the AC is on.
I did a swap into a van years ago and due to my finances reused everything with new o-rings and an accumulator. AC for around $200 total

In the Tobacco drying Room
1994 F350 XLT Project B5.9-180 ZF

In the Other stables:
1996-E250 FrankenQuigley
1997-P74 HPP It's got "Cop Motor&Cop Suspension&Cop Shocks"
