Mounting a used ECU

My 2014 Touareg's ECU is dead following an inverted cables jump start attempt...😥
Given the price of a new one I started to look online for a used one but I'm not sure the VW repair shop will be able to mount it on my car as he told me that it has to be specifically pre-programmed to my car according its VIN before they can mount it and activate it.
Now I didn't feel the person who told me that very assertive and wanted to know then why people would sell used ECUs if they could not be fitted...
My question is: does anyone know how to proceed to mount a used ECU ?
Thank you!
