Again use care with any screws, most common modern screws used for wood framing you'll find are not rated for any shear loading, and are likely not to have much in tension. However, you may be able to source wood screws that will suffice, well worth finding the fastener that has some loading capability in shear, tension and has threads with the best pull out or failure values. I would assume you could "beef up" the framing, for that garage door repair I mentioned, I liked being able to span a few trusses to spread out the load, and being able to clamp down on that bottom chord, eliminated any free play, the swing will impose some kind of rotational forces, so I would want to anticipate that and incorporate what makes sense to stiffen and safely secure it above, I kind of overthink some things, and like overkill and substantial safety margins, especially when it comes to things like these.
