96 e320 to manual

I have little experience in the auto tech world which is a good portion of the reason i'm looking into this. I want to take my 96 e320 and convert it from an automatic to manual. What model transmissions are compatible with it. I previously wanted to drop a Nissan engine in it like a skyline or a stock 240sx, but that posed many problems. If anyone knows of a swap between a mercedes engine and a skyline, that would be really helpful. Sorry if i sound inexperienced

Not a good idea. The cost would run into the $1000's and easily exceed the value of the car. There are much better ways to burn money, including getting a better built, newer car.
