Use the exact weight oil in your engine as is listed in your owners manual. Most major brands are good. I use Pennzoil and have for over 30 years. Never had an internal engine problem. Also use a good oil filter. Purolator & Wix are a good choice.

1.9 transmission of a ford escort fit on a 1.8 dohc motor?

No, I looked into this myself. I have the 93 escort GT with a 1.8. Only another 1.8 escort and certain tracer transmissions will fit. The price does not come cheap between $800 (rebuild) and $1500 (new). I thought I was going to have to trash the whole car because of the transmission. If you are having trouble getting the car to go in first gear, and shifting up to 3rd gear while driving, or going in reverse, join the club. Buy a new transmission filter ($20) and some new transmission fluid ($10). The transmission pan comes off and the filter is right there. My car runs pretty good now, it should last me a few more years. I was amazed how this worked over buying a brand new transmission.
