Your friend's estimate of cost for metalwork is unrealistic. Getting the tools off CL and learning the skills is more realistic. The cab is a bit rough. Try pricing all the needed patch panels, not all of which are available. Better to fabricate some bits.
Swapping VINs isn't a great idea. Its a federal issue, there are hidden VIN and correct ways to attach the plates.

I've never seen a hidden vin on one of these. Just cab ( plate) and frame
stamped. The only other number I have seen on a 55 59 is a year stamp on back panel low on the corner of 58 and 59 which is usually gone and not on all of them
