Put my 3T's motherboard in a donor 3T? Problems?

    My 3T was in a (stupid) accident which made the body bent a little and crack the screen. But it still boots. So I want to replace the screen and check what else might not be working. Also, I want acces to my data, but I can't because I can not use the screen... But I figured that pulling the motherboard out of my 3T and putting it in a donor 3T might be easier (no heating & glueing...) and give me a better (non bended) body.

    My question is now, will I run into issues when I place my 3T's motherboard with all my data into another, working secondhand 3T? Of course, I do not want to do a factory reset. Are there any device specific things that might cause problems? Can I put my 128GB motherboard into a 64GB model? Can I use a Oneplus 3 body?

    Secondly, I've also read that Oneplus 3 screens are not fully compatible with 3T bodies. They work but you loose off screen gestures and tap-on screen.

    Any tips are welcome.

    I don't think this is gonna work. Nothing wromg I'm trying of course. But I guess since both 3 and 3t work on different soc... This task seems more on the negative side.
