Subaru Stars 99 impreza phase 2 motor swap Q's

Hi, am pretty new here, have read alot, but never posted.
I have a 99 impreza outback sport, 2.2 phase 2 with a 5 speed, 225,000 miles and it is starting to run really bad, loosing milage, fouling plugs and a compression test proves it. my question is this: what other motors can i put inthis car as a good used phase 2 2.2 is hard to find. can I put my heads on a older or newer 2.2, 2.5 bottem end? is there one better than another, such as older motors having the dished pistons giving lower compression. Or is there other complete motors that I can just drop in?
I am going to need to put another motor in soon and want to do it cheaply as possible, yet get the best bang for my buck.
Any good info on this will be greatly appritiated.
