Second Hand ECU

I'm new to this forum so hi there to everyone and thanks for any advice you can give. I have a 2004 Clio Dynamique which suffered slight damage when I skidded on a wet surface. Resulting in the passenger side air bag being released. My question is; if I buy a second hand ECU from a Clio which was not damaged in any way and the air bags were not released, will this work as a replacement. I have heard conflicting stories for various garages that this cannot be done as each one is programmed to a particular car, so a new replacement is necessary. Others say it can be used, but it would need reprogramming by a Renault garage. Any advice from anyone with previous experience of this would be appreciated.
Nearly forgot, is it the same story if I was to get a second hand key fob. My local Renault garage said I would have to buy a completely new key. Thanks, Mark
