Samir,

Yes, the cylinder swap must be done by a service center.   it requires cutting the top end seal.   Do not buy any engine that does not have a lettered cylinder already They will not be legal and you will have to replace it at a potentially very high cost.   A good rotax cylinder can cost well over $1000.  I have seen them sell for $3000 to $5000.  That is for a cylinder only.   I do have a very good engine that I have been on the fence about selling.   If you have not purchased one yet contact Christian Fox.  He and I talk a lot about our engines and tuning so he can vouch for me.
