Welcome to the forum.

There are a bunch of post on the Howell setup. Most on the 4.2L conversion but it should be essentially the same.
Google is your friend. I am not familar with the swap but if you use google you can find a bunch of info on it.

No, there isn't any reason too. The stock fuel pump is regulated down but puts out 60psi minimum. It should be more then enough pressure for your swap.

Yes, you will need to regulate it to whatever pressure you need but the pump, tank, sending unit and the fuel guage can stay and save you a lot of hassel and $$$$$. The TBI is one injector and usually rated at 15psi. I don't know where you are getting the 350tbi but make sure that there isn't a regulator already there. Our TBI setup on the YJ has the regulator on the TBI on the 87-90. You might be able to just bolt up the lines if you are lucky!

If you have that much rust by the mounts you need to check the entire frame especially by the steering gear box and the shackles. The frames rust from the inside out.
