Default 2000 Legacy GT wagon auto / want jdm wrx swap ..but which one??

Hello all , new to nasioc, and need input on my situation.
Long story short , I have a 00 legacy gt auto . yes , auto. I do know how to drive m/t . just bought this car cheap. It calls for a 2.5 but that one was no good and I put in a n/a ej201..sohc 2.0 ... Runs and drives with the 2.5 ecu just underpowered for such a large car.

The problem .

I live in Va where emissions is an issue . I am, not want to buy, a jdm Wrx motor ...maybe trans . but probably just long block. My issue is what jdm,wrx motor -years / codes /should I buy so can I run off a usdm or jdm harness (merged) with usdm auto Wrx ecu. (For emissions),my problem is it looks like the usdm Wrx motor has extras like tgvs , and such that the jdm one doesn't have.so if I run the us ecu it will throw codes because the extras will be missing.and I dont want codes.also I'm not sure about this but ive read about avcs on most jdm Wrxs and starts only In 05? and up in us.so the us ecu won't work that function on the jdm motor..

I'm lost here.
What I need to know
What year jdm motor do I need for a 2000,legacy gt auto that I can merge and pass emissions. Also what ecu..

Any info is helpful to me .
If you suggest sell the car and buy a new one , that's not what I'm going for.
Someone has done this before .but who??
