as long as you take the other one out it'll slot straight in.
you havent gone into a whole lot of detail about what F6 model or XR6 you are referring to though.

Its an FG XR6 so im guessing an FG f6. Would it be hard to hook up all the turbos and engine block to my current gear box and all that sorta stuff?

It will all bolt into your car and up to your gearbox. You will need to change ECU's and the loom to match.

Then it needs to go to ford to get the ECU's and security matched up or it needs a flash tune.

Wont this void your warranty? I'd be selling the NA car and buying a turbo one in your situation.

It would not be hard to do as the FG comes out with turbo but in all if you wanted a turbo you should have got one in the first place as now the cash your having to spend to do it will now come close to the FG Turbo purchase price.
The Gearbox and drivetrain also need to be upgraded as the Turbo driveline is stronger. The turbos also dont use the 5 speed auto.
As with your engine, to replace it with the F6 310 motor will cost a fortune. Maybe better off upgrading the internals of yours and attaching the turbo and reflashing the ECU. But do you really want to do this to such a new car ?

sell yours and buy an FG T, will be cheaper and much less headaches, you will still have warranty on it too.

resale on your xr6 wont be good if you do the conversion, as people who want an XR6T, will buy a XR6T and not a conversion. and personally i would never buy a converted XR6 cos you dont know what your getting...

if you have the cash to buy an f6 310 motor, you will easily be able to cover the difference in price for an XR6T

simply flash tuning it will get you going quicker than the F6 anyway....
