Another engine transplant question

Having searched the archives, I haven't been able to find the answers I need - Due to new draconian company car tax laws due in the UK next year, I am having to get rid of my much loved E280T. The essence of saving money on the car tax is to have a low emmisions registered car eg, a 2 litre merc - I am specifically looking at getting an E200T W124 maybe 1996 model. The question is how difficult is it to slot in a bigger motor like a six cylinder 2.8 or 3.2 (or even 3.6) . Presumably I'd need the auto box to match ? Would the suspension set up be different to account for the weight up front ? Are the brakes the same on all the W124T models ?
All help gratefully received.
