Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You could replace the engine with a diesel, certainly, but it wouldn't be cost effective. Replacing the engine with anything but the correct one will require major modification. Along with the engine you would also have to install all of it's accessories, exhaust, transmission, cooling system, you would need to fabricate motor mounts, there would be major rewiring work to allow it to work, etc. If you had a wrecked vehicle to work from to take the entire powertrain and it's support systems from it would be helpful, but it would still be expensive and time consuming.
