Need advice for installing new crate motor

I'm getting ready to put a new crate 350 in my GMC. My questions are:

1. What do I need to hook up the transmission (T350), I have a flexplate and linkage what else is there I might need on the motor side.

2.For break in do I have to use diesel motor oil? And with this being a new GM motor has it already been broke in at the factory.

I know these are probably real simple questions but the first engine I put in was used and went from one running car to my truck. And it only lasted two years. When I put this engine in I dont want to do it again for a while.

Thanks for the help.
