First of all welcome to the forum.
The speedo will need coding to the car, Ford could do that for you, but tend not to as they don't like fitting secondhand parts mainly because there is no money in it for you.
You could ask an independent garage to try coding it but they may not have the software needed.
There are members of this site producing software for coding and activating options on the Focus, have a search for ELM327 and programming and you may find something of use to you.
