I need a new engine. I have found a 1.8 Turbo (dual port) for my 1991 Loyale but do not know if if can swap it for my 1.8 single port. Does anyone have any experience with this? thanks!

this has been covered in a lot of other threads but, in short NO.
the spfi wiring and ecm will not run a mpfi system, meaning you would need to rewire the car with wiring from the mpfi turbo doner car. it would also require the front crossmember from the turbo car and a lot of other intake plumbing , exhaust and hoses issues to do it. BAD idea , anyway the ea82T is the worst motor they have made as for as reliability. just find any spfi or even a carb motor and use your original intake and engine wiring and sensors on it, they are usually cheap and easy to find.

Not easily. If you have to ask - you aren't equipped for the task.
