    I assume you mean Citroen VTS (Xsara or C4?)

    I suggest you do a bit more searching, first thing is to figure out which engine and gearbox you're planning to use, XU or EW series, and the variant.
    Once you know which engine, you will find a huge amount of info both here and other forums about the engine swaps into 205's. You can then start a special thread with specific questions. The answer to both your questions so far is: Yes.

    The xsara is a good donner car to use,
    The motor and gearbox to start with, also the front and rear brakes the steering rack the front springs and rear shocks will all fit in the 205.
    The xzara computer is not compatterble, your cheapest option is buy a unlocked ecu out of a 306 gti 6 and a modified 306 gti6/205 gti wiring harness. But you must tell them it's going on to a xsara motor not a 306.
    You will have a lot more hassles than the wiring, you will also have to get rid of the a/c.
