If the engine is immobilised through the ignition then it will still crank so your problem is most probably electrical, provided the engine is not seized up for some reason but to check this, do the following.

First try to turn the engine by hand. If this works, then check wiring, voltage at the starter motor, earth connections, etc. It may be a faulty starter motor, but if it fails to turn by hand then you may be sitting with a mechanical fault.

If you only replaced the engine only, and kept the ecu and alarm unit then it should start.

My next trick would be to disconnect any and all cables from the starter motor/solenoid and connect a jump lead from the +ve battery terminal to the starter to see if it spins. Connect that +ve to the solenoid to "fire" the starter motor itself.
