Front Mech Advice

I need to fit a new front mech on my Trek 7.3
I have been given a Deore conventional swing mech. The old one is a top swing one - not sure of the spec. Are top swing and botton swing ones interchangeable?

If you put the bottom swing mech alongside the old top swing one on the frame so that the cages are at the same elevation, does the clamp of the new one appear to foul anything on the frame?

Assuming we are not talking about top/bottom pull mechs, I am unsure why cable routing is going to be an issue. Generally top swings are used so that the clamp can be positioned a little lower to allow more room for bottle cages etc. on the downtube.
