Hi I just bought a 2001 s60 2.4 NA automatic, and was wondering if anyone had any advice on doing so?

The short answer, not to be an internet troll, is to sell it and buy a manual.

In order for you to do a manual swap, you'll need essentially every wiring harness/device out of the donor car as well, otherwise the computer will freak out and not be happy (or remove all factory components and do a standalone engine management system).

Since these cars are so old, the resale has tanked, so you can get a T5 w/ a manual for not much.

Otherwise, just enjoy what you currently have, unfortunately 01-02's are prone to automatic transmission issues, so just be aware of that.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but a manual swap on these cars is nowhere near simple nor cost effective in the large scope of things
