Hi and welcome to the forum
First of all, the fascia's - you will need a fascia just to fill in the hole that is left after you whip out the old stereo, you should be able to find them generically on ebay, its just a case of slot it into the big hole and fit your stereo into the little hole! simples
As for the wiring, you will probably need a wiring adapter loom, just to conver the connections from Ford to Aftermarket. As for the remote controls on the steering wheel there is a hit and miss chance they will work. If the stereo is setup to allow them and you can plug them in then you stand a chance, however the way these controls work is by sending a signal to the stereo.
i.e. Volume up - "DOT DASH DASH DASH DOT" however there is no guarantee your stereo will interpret that as volume up but could be channel up, or another change...
Dont be surprised if you find that they dont all work, but equally theres a chance they all will
