What do I need to change in my 1985 olds Cutlass supreme to change aa 307 to a 305

The 305 is a Chevy 305 will it still be OK
That could be different, Oldsmobile vs Chevy... It still might, I can't remember at the moment, If it bolts in you will be fine. If you can, it would be wise to compare the two looking for any differences before doing anything.

Putting in a Chevy 305 AND transmission can be done with a lot of work, The cross-member doesn't line up and and the drive shafts are different lengths. The Chevy will not bolt up to the Olds trany.
