IFixit tried to switch parts before the usual disassembly report, and obviously you can use some iPhone 8 parts in SE without problems, cameras and screen assembly including microphone, proximity sensor, SIM tray and taptic drive will work in the newer model, on

You can’t replace Touch ID button from another iPhone, Apple and approved repair shops have to do this, you’ll also have to forget to replace the battery, while the lithium ion packs look very similar, SE uses a new conductor, and it won’t be an option
