also if it can go in the Acclaim would the digital odometer/trip computer thing and climate control from the berlina still work?

They will work, but they are not plug and play. Re: cluster, search for a thread called Trippin'.

Climate control can be done, but you need ALL of the wiring and sensors associated with it.

For the people that have done this before, could you please tell me your experiences? Eases and Difficulties about the job and maybe the tools required
I would really like to do it, i mean i have all the parts required so why not upgrade?

It's not all that hard, set aside a day and that should be easily enough time.

You'll need a philips head screw driver, a couple flatheads (one being very small), a pick if you don't have a small flathead, maybe a pair of pliers, a 2m length of rope/cord, electrical tape, the pinout diagram off the trippin thread would be good too. Optional is an alcoholic beverage of your choice.
