Default Cylinder Head swaps? N/A vs F/I

Hello everyone, wondering if anyone can clear up a question I have..

I was under the impression one could not swap the N/A 1.6 cylinder head with the Supercharged 1.6 head?

I'm looking at picking up a 2002 Cooper S with a cracked head (coolant in oil). A local parts recycling guy is saying the heads are interchangeable.. Is that true?

If so, I think I'm going to pick it up today for pretty cheap. Would make a fun project for my nephew and I!

Would like to know also, however my dad did swap a head to a non supercharged motor and does not know which head was supercharged because he thought it was the same. But I looked at it and the ontake or exhaust did have something different. But anyways it started it up, but shutdown and now it does not turn on. Trying to figure out what the problem is...
