The 2x3 will be Ok..build it like an upside down T with some bracing and do the bolted connections so it can come apart. wheels and castors are needed on one of those as it makes life easier. As far as the hoist a chain hoist is what we have used for years on that kind of hoist and these days they all come form china as far as I know..sometimes a good deal can be found on craigslist or a swap meet if you are patient..
