Transmission swap ZF>GM

I have a chance to buy a good used transmission out of a car that is the same year as my car. The only difference is that my transmission is a ZF and the replacement one is the GM one. Will this work? Do I need to swap transmission control units too? Are the cooler lines the same? Is the electronic connector the same? I will be able to use two lifts and swap everything over, just haven't looked at them too closely yet cause the donor car isn't easily accessible right now. Looking to swap it out Friday. If I don't get any answers I will let you know my self. Any heads up would be appreciated.
