The DRB II (2) or the new DRB 3 (StarMobile) scan tool is a Chrysler based scan tool. It has the capability to flash-tune provided that one has Witech license and techauthority subscription to flash using witech software. If one does not have the license no access to the software, you will only have diagnostic tools.
Chrysler's DRB II is no different then Ford's StarTool, or GM's Tech 2 scan tools.
The only difference from those then a Snap-On Solus-pro and the like is that they are proprietary to the respective manufacturer, and some may have more diagnostic features then the after market scan tools.
I know this is an old thread, but I have never ran into any ECU swap-out problems Because of Vin numbers not being correct. Heck I have swapped out ECM from Gas vehicles and had no problems. Where did Hawkeye get this information. If Chrysler did this they would have a few lawsuits coming. ECM have to be like any other part.
