Re: How much fitting cost (Gearbox)
2nd hand gearboxes are sometimes on ebay or you can contact someone like AlfaCity (who also sell through ebay!). If someone is breaking the type of car you want, contact them and if they have the part yo can often get hem to quote and put it on "buy it now"basis.
Otherwise you can try 24/7 Spares and National Breakers and trace one through their websites and contacts.
But like beardo says, talk to a specialist first as it might be repairable. Buying one 2nd hand does have risks ...
