Does the tractor you want to use have the PTO cover lines too? If not, you don't have the built in auxiliary pump. I would switch the rear ends. If either one or both have Multi-Power, lift cover or shift cover will need removed to disconnect the oil line before splitting at rear of transmission.

As Dieseltech has said it will be necessary to remove the shifter cover and/or the hydraulic cover if either tractor has MP. It will also be necessary to remove the LH side cover in order to align the splines for the main drive shaft and main hydraulic pump. The main shaft and shear tube can be put in afterwards. It is certainly advisable to remove the split pin from the shear tube to ensure correct position via the correct splitpin hole in it.
On going that far it would also be advisable to remove the hyd cover of the back end to be used to clean the filter/s and remove any buildup of grease that may find its way into the filters from years of greasing of the cross-shaft.

No holes on the "good" tractor's PTO plate so I doubt there is an auxiliary pump. How hard is it to split at the rear of the tranny? It looks like just unhook the brakes and steps and several bolts.

It is a straight forward job with the right equipment. Remember that you will have to manoeuvre the rear ends to make the "good" one.
A suitable trolley jack is OK to split them but you need something more to move them. Once you have them in line it is essential that the closing gap is equal all round as you bring them together. Long slave bolts can be used to help alignment but under NO circumstances use the bolts to "pull" the two halves together.
