Curious as to how you know there is no power to the PCM? Can it crank if the PCM isn't involved in the process? Don't know, just asking to make sure you really don't have power to the PCM.

It will crank all day without a PCM, just not gonna start

Next, you should ALWAYS post your yr/mdl when asking for help...

Without a WTS and your swap it does sound like it's a power issue. Thing is, they're All fused so, and I don't mean to insult you here , but in 99% of these cases it IS a fuse!

You have to Triple Check, use a meter (or light) on Both sides, pull them out, wiggle them around, REALLY give everything a close examination.

Fuses #19-30-22 are among the most likely, I'm sure there are others that supply power also so, check 'em ALL.

Another thing can be the fusebox itself, a previous owner might have jammed one of those fuse-tappers along side a fuse and bent the "clip" inside so it now doesn't grab the fuse well.

Also, do you have a chip or tuner installed? a problem there can prevent the PCM from running, take it off as a Test.

Do you have any other things that aren't powered like they're supposed to?

NoRalPhh is right. He knows this stuff.
And if there's no WTS light, no power to the PCM, then there's a good chance it's still that fuse that powers them and the fuel bowl heater. Pull it out, look at it, and still put a new one in for the heck of it.
