Over here Dr.RX did an STi swap into a late 90's impreza much like you plan on doing, he'll tell you, and i'll tell you, after my own 2.2 EJ swap, the wiring is typically strightforward, but nowhere near "easy" and at a minimum, i would get a Factory Service Manual for the engine you are swapping into the car, i'd also reccomend the recipient's FSM as well, so you can integrate the wiring harnesses together for minimum hassle.
As an ASE tech i can tell you that this is a thinking swap, not a hammer and pry bar job, so unless you plan on getting real good at soldering, and really like your DVOM, this may not be right for you, this is in no way to discourage you, rather to get you to do your homework beforehand, so that you have everything you need before you start to avoid getting discouraged and quitting in the middle.
