The lift kits, as mentioned are relatively simple to install, I'd go with one of the kits available, it will save you a lot of headache down the road.
As far as the engine, you are limited by the width of the frame rails. An EA-81 (1.8) should fit, I'm not 100% on that but someone else may be able to comment to that. It won't at much power, but you'll gain some torque, which will help with the bigger tires if you go that route.
With that engine, I'd recommend a 5 speed dual range transmission out of a EA-82 GL the DL's are not dual range, and the automatics are problematic.
There is a really good FAQ in the offroad section that covers most everything that you'll be asking, I suggest reading through that and then asking any questions you might have.
