Zf5 swap questions (wiring/PCM)

I have a 97 psd crew auto , I've had 2 other obs psd. 1 5speed and 1 auto. I was never satisfied with my auto even after having rebuilt. I've found a 96 psd 5 speed that is cheap enough I could use for a donor truck. I'm wondering if the 96/97 wiring harness and PCM are compatible , because was reading in another post that the connectors and pinouts are different throughout the years. I also have read you can keep the auto PCM and put the auto mlps in neutral, but then how do I get my reverse lights to work?

With a switch

But harness is the same unless one of them is a California model, just strip the stick shift of everything but also keep in mine you will need to lengthen the driveshaft since the f250 is obviously not a CClb that your getting the parts from
