Manual to auto conversion help - 67 Bettle mid engine conversion.

Hi all,
I wonder if anyone could help me, I have a 1967 VW Beetle with a mid engined Subaru Impreza WRX 2.0 engine and 5 speed manual gearbox.
The problem is that the manual gear change is reversed (1st is 2nd and 2nd is 1st etc right through the box....
I have made a reverse linkage but the change is still blooming awful!
This Liked to the heavy stage 4 clutch has made me decide to do a
full auto gearbox conversion.
I have found someone breaking a full WRX Auto locally and can get everything needed but wondered is it possible to convert the box so I can just change gear manually as the full conversion could be a wiring nightmare!
If not could anyone help with What I need parts/wiring/ecu wise.
Could anyone tell me the parts required?
Torque converter
Gear selector
Gearbox ecu? - do I need this
Car ecu - do I need to swap my manual ecu for the Auto ecu?
Anything else?
Any help would be great.
