Best thing for you to do to get an idea of what you need is to go over to the EJ2.0L forum and read the EJ207 threads. There are two main threads on the subject.

There are also threads in the Subaru Conversion forum.

If you do a Google search, you will get a number of hits on different model Subarus that had performed the EJ207 swap. Some of them are very detailed.

Just to start, you want a complete long block, a JDM ECU, and the engine wiring harness.
