I mean, to do the swap you are talking about cutting your old rad support out and welding in another one. Draining and removing the radiator, and discharging the a/c system is really mi-nute the least of your worries.
AC needs discharged. Radiator holds itself up(with a little propping) and doesn't need removed and drained.
