On to the actual mounting of the engine and trans. I'm sure somebody makes a mount that will drop the motor and trans into place. I will take the contrarian point of view and suggest some ways to do it.

Here's a crossmember that accepts stock-type Chevy motor mounts and bolts or welds to the frame....,3273.html
Uses these rubber mounts...,7959.html
Or these polyurethane mounts...These may transfer a little more of the vibration of the motor to the frame/seat/your caboose/steering wheel.

Here's another mount system that may work with some tweaking. I have used this arrangement on a few cars. Works out sweet.,8473.html
Here are the instructions....

Here are some stands that will work with the stock rubber motor mount. Just trim/cut the stands for the location where you want to weld them in....,1905.html

Maybe this arrangement would work for you. These are AD Chevy frame adapters....,6673.html
That work with this mount....
Here's the install illustration....
And instructions....
