    I wish You lived closer so I could just go over and Help you out! Can you take some pictures of the wires & all the stuff on the Tongue.
    This is a basic controller it will do the job but nothing fancy you will also need the right connector for your truck. This is the link to the setup you need. https://www.etrailer

    Yes if you want the brake away safety switch to work. Some place mandate that if your trailer has brakes the safety switch has to work.

    I would go for the used controller if is plug and play like the Tekonsha.

    I had a Tekonsha on my last pickup (current one it's integrated). They get my vote.

    A Ford harness for the P2 or P3 controller will plug in to the factory socket under the driver's side dash. My 98 F150SC had a nice pocket to right of the steering column that my P2 fit right in. did have to drill a hole large enough for the cable connector to pass through. I used super velco to hold it in. My controller only comes up to play when camping.
