The size is different. The 360 engine is a 5.9 liter engine and a 318 is a 5.2 liter engine.
difference between 2.5 and 3 liter engine is .5 of a liter

Yes, internally the engine is the exact same. The electronics or accessories may be different, but you just use the stuff from the 1996 engine.
Aside from being different size engines, they are totally different engines with no interchangeable parts.
The temperature sending unit on a 1999 Jeep Cherokee 4 liter is screwed into the thermostat housing on the front of the engine.
The engine takes six quarts.
The early 4.7 engine in the grand cherokee,dakotas,and rams have had problems with cylinders on the rear left of the engine,starting with a knocking then overheating and seizing .
Not with out major modifications.
