NO.
You won't be able to mount the transmission. The mount bracket to body are totally different.

Just keep the transmission with transfer case. Swap everything forward of the transmission as a whole unit. Call it a day. Most of the xDrive weight is from front axles (steel) and front spindles. Spindles are cast iron and heavier than the steel axles!

If you have a fabricator you can Fab a transmission mount but that's a pipe dream.
Or just get a RWD, they are plenty. Even as auto. Now swap is easier and you can take advantage of engine out to replace every single gasket and hoses that leak or break
