If it is for Drift, do it properly with a specialty hydraulic unit.

As for fitting the EF/EL handbrake to an EB you need to do the following.

Change the centre console to an EL type
Bolt the handle to the floor
Drill hole in floor behind driver seat for cable to pass through.
Fabricate Chassis locator for cable to sit in.
Convert rear brakes to EF/EL using correct model backing plates, calipers and rotors.
Weld handbrake cables to diff housing (or source complete EF/EL diff)

As the EF/EL system uses and 'drum brake' style setup, I don't know if it will work like you hope it will.

Oh, and no, you can't just connect the EF/EL handle to the EB handbrake cable. They have different leverage properties.
