Question 2011 Kia Sorento 3.5L Engine Swap

Hi, quick question. I have a 2011 Kia Sorento with an engine that threw a rod.
I am looking at buying a replacement engine and see that there are 2 different types (a 13 bolt oil pan engine and a 14 bolt oil pan engine).

Does anyone know if there are other differences on these engines other than the number of bolts on the oil pan?

Is it okay to replace a 13 bolt oil pan engine with a 14 bolt oil pan engine?

Is your Sorento part of the recall regarding the rod?

To my knowledge that started for the 2012 model so I missed it by 1 year.

My 2012 manufacture date is NOV/30/11. Unless they go by the model year or manufacture date?
