I would say putting the creeper gear (hi-lo) into the pto, because you wouldn't have to pull the tranny completely apart just to do that one thing. Just my suggestion, Ian.

Be easiest to switch the entire rearend with PTO to the other tractor.  That would be a straight forward process.   The shifter for the PTO requires a hole up high in the side of the rearend housing.  If you just switch the PTO componets, you will have to drill a hole for the shifter in the other rearend.  Then you will have drill shavings inside your rearend case.  You will find the PTO turns the wrong direction to power anything.  The PTO has a cool factor but is pretty much worthless for use.   I also believe your 3 point will interfere with the PTO without some modification.  Best of luck with whatever you decide.

Wait though, the creeper gear was an option you could have. If you didn't have it, the casting was still in the frame. You wouldn't have to drill a hole through the frame. Ian

not the creeper shifter through the frame,  the PTO shifter hole in the side of the tranny case
