Forget the idea and let the matter rest. Engines are from 2 different planets and I would not even dream of it. The cost is going to astronomical. Job requires cutting and welding to match the mounting points. Wireharness, drive trains, suspension and brakes etc have to be modified/upgraded. A 4-AGE 20 valve conversion would be a better idea.

Would that have similar mounting points to the tazz motor?

Yes, in fact they are of the same chassis.

When performance increases, the braking efficiency would need to be improved.

Over here we tend to get a half-cut, usually the front portion of the vehicle and transfer whatever necessary to your vehicle. Ensure you get the same type, as 2 door and sedan have different dash and would be rather difficult to match.
