Engine Swap and clutch Questions

I hope you can help me make my decision.
I am starting with a 1991 yj 4cyl. I purchased a 95 4.0 engine with 85,000 miles on it that a guy had wrecked. Does anybody have measurements on how far forward I need to move the engine mounts? Also I have the bell housing from the 6 cylinder and will that bolt up to the ax5 tranny or should I bit the bullet and find an ax15 tranny to match up to it. Also when I push the clutch in and put it in gear the jeep starts to move before I let out on the clutch. Is that the slave cylinder or another issue?
Thanks for your help!!!!!

you cannot use the ax5 trans with the 4.0, it won't handle it, and it doesn't bolt up if you wanted it to.

i can measure the frame in my garage if you're having trouble finding the measurements,
