Anyone knows if you can fit the ECU from a European 2008 Exige S240 into a USA Exige? Are these two different units (the USA and European) or are they identical?

they are identical in hardware, but not software, also the dealer cannot update it to a federal spec, doing so will disable the car.

its the software thats different,2004 is different, there are two models of the 2005 year, the 2006-2007 is the same, 2008 is a new one, 2009 is similar, 2010 is slightly different. but they all need different software.
the difference in eu vs row is mostly insignificant, until 2008, so long as you match the hardware year.
