Engine Swap

Ok so i have an 02 Altima with 95k and it shakes like crazy.
Took it to the delaer for the ECU recall.
Now it still there but when i drive and i hit the gas, it barely reacts.
I took it to a mechanic and a friend who is a master tech and they both told me the head gasket is done.
White smoke comes out the muffler.
They said the best bet is a another engine.
he found a 04 altima engine with 30k on it.
Should i do it ?
What r the pros and cons ?

I think it would be cheaper to just replace the headgaskets
my uncle told me the same thing. he said i should keep the engine and do the head gasket cause who knows if the engine ill get has the mile the mechanic tells me and the real condition of the engine. Do you know of anyone in NYC who can do the job for a good price ?
