Default Engine Swap Questions for my 2000 Civic Si

I bought a used 2000 Honda Civic Si about a month ago and it was running pretty well until on a trip home from Pittsburgh I started to have cylinder misfires. After changing the spark plugs and then a compression test it turns out my first cylinder probably has a bad valve and rather then pay a garage to tear it apart, check to make sure that is it and then pay however much to fix it (was given a $1,500 estimate by a garage), I am looking into getting a new engine (I know a local mechanic who works out of his house but all he does is Hondas and I trust him).
Instead of getting another b16a that is in my car now I am looking into getting a b18c just for a little extra power since I am already spending more then I ever planned. I am confused with how the swap exactly works and what I need. I plan on using my same transmission so I basically just want to take my old engine out and put the new one in BUT I am unsure if I can just do it or if I need other parts because my Honda guy directed me to the forums because he said their is a possibility the head or exhaust or something is "butterfly" and isn't sure if the new engine is as well? Again I'm sorry if this isn't making sense but I am only beginning to understand cars. If someone could explain to me exactly what I have to do or even suggestions as far as possible solutions/engine fits please let me know. Thanks.
