I HAVE A WITH A TCM PROBLEM CAN I BUY A USED TCM AND INSTALL IT OR DO I HAVE TO GO TO THE DEALER AND BUY A NEW ONE?

1997 BMW Z3 • 83,000 miles

I was told the TCM's were VIN specific and could not be swapped out.

Thats correct. New only and has to be flashed. I would be very sure before you do this operation. It is not a common failure for this piece.
