You may want to start with a GT base, as the 5S-FE and the 3S-GTE share motor mounts, it will make the job a lot easier.

However, you can just change the mounts in the ST to fit the 3S-GTE, just requires solid welding skills.

The GT in Europe came with a 3SGE Marshall, he is not talking about swapping a 3SGTE, but a 3SGE.

You will have to weld in a motor mount and use the donor car's tranny, crossmember, harness and ECU.

Honestly, there is little to be gained versus keeping the GT, unless it is wrecked and the ST has a blown motor.

Ah right, lucky everyone else (except maybe Australia?) got the 3S-GE in the GT... sucks to be in America some times... oh well.
