Default Moonroof Delete / Roof Swap

So, my moon roof got stuck open today, and now it's going to rain. So, this got me thinking. I've never liked moon roofs (30lbs up top, door rattles, sun bakes my balding head when it's open, barely flows air into the car), so I want to see how hard it would be to swap out the roof.

First and foremost, which roofs fit an '02 WRX wagon? I've seen an '05 wrx wagon roof for sale in the right color (WRB), and a handful of Saab roofs.

Second, and more importantly, how complicated is the job. If I have a friend who's a mechanic, is this something we can knock out in a day? What's involved in the process?

While I'm doing all of this, I'll probably do a roof rack delete. Hell, I may even add a roof scoop if I'm feeling saucy.

(looking at some pictures... it's not welded to the rest of the car... is it? That may throw a wrench in the whole operation . Perhaps I should have posted this in the newbie forum, lol.)
