    Early engines had integral bells.
    Later engines will match up to a small block.

    Not all of them. There was only one with the extended bell. And I don't know if they are the same as LA, doubt it. Likely starter mount differences if not more

    I thought the crank on the hemis stick out an extra inch, so a spacer nessesary. Hot heads down in NC has the scoop on all that stuff.

    I interpreted the question as "bolt up".
    It will "bolt up", now crank offset is different question!

      If you're running a manual trans with the integral bell the adapter may be as simple as a flat plate of the correct dimension and thickness.
