Will I need to change the computer or anything ? If the motor has the EGR whole and I don't need it. can I just block the EGR space ?

no its all good, if you do not have a egr valve and the one you get does, there should be no problem blocking the passage with a plate. Either way the autowreckers will ask what egine you have if you go that way

Are there any other models that will be a direct replacement like Durango, Ram Jeep. etc and years

I use a program that the auto wreckers use, and It only lists the Dakota, so im thinking no, But you could call a autowrecker to be sure.
