Automatic PCM in a manual truck?

I am pretty sure i have a PCM out of an automatic truck in my manual truck. Its a 2000 7.3L throwin codes only for a manual tranny. Like shift solenoid A shift solenoid B torque converter solenoid. So my question is WHY would anyone put an automatic pcm in a manual truck? How does it even run correctly? And if i want to put a manual pcm back in the truck where do i get one and does it need to be the year 2000 sepcific or do i need to get the dealership to flash one specific to my truck? So many questions any answers or thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Also how much are pcm's usually?

Is it on the actual PCM? Do i have to take it out to see the code or can i just look under the dash at it and see it?

Ok so here we go there were 4 number/letter combinations on the sticker. It reads:
XC37-AG NPEF
XPC4 006022

The only reason im asking is because when i installed the programmer it wanted to "shift" gears like an automatic would. In every gear it would get to about 3000rpms then start declining in rpm even when my foot was still in the throttle. It would kind of fall on its face and lose power like it was trying to shif to the next gear!? It was odd...

Should be a 4 digit code like xle4, nvk5, pmt1, there are many others but all should be three letters and a number.
