NV4500 in 03 250

Hey everyone, new to the site. In the process of dropping a 96 12v Cummins in my ford replacing a 5.4v8 gasser. I've always wanted my truck to be standard so now is the time. I have the dodge NV4500 that came with the engine and transfer case so it should all bolt in with only crossmember and driveline changes. My current problem is transmission issues. I would like to leave my auto column, and just mask the hole for the shifter and cover the PRD123 indicator.
Do I leave the shifter in park?
I looked at a scrapyard truck like mine but standard, the column is way more to the drivers side to make room for the clutch. however I saved the bracket and clutch/brake assembly from the dodge, can i just scab that to fit? and leave my column?
What's the pcm everyone talks about, wiring isn't my forte, the mechanical bit is. All of the mounting, cutting etc. is no problem, it's these small questions I have. I don't want stupid check engine lights etc etc. Being diesel 12v and 5speed will I even need my computer anymore? I have manual transfer case, no power anything? Thanks guys.
