Without using a proper image editor in this instance probably easier if you just attach the two photos and I transfer them for you.
The way to do it is to take both photos and load them onto say for example Paint Net , or Paintshop Pro which I have both or Photoshop
then using the magic wand put a dotted line around the face you want to move copy it and paste it onto the face you want to replace as a new layer so you edit it.
Here is a couple of if's and but's, if the position of the body is different from the A to B shot then the A face wont fit properly over the B face.
If face A is looking left and differs from face B in the angel here again is a problem aligning the new face into position to match the body on B photo and could make him look like the hunchback ;)
So you'd need to use the magic wand selection tool  freehand and manually highlight the finite details around the edge of the Face A.\Paint Net would be the simplest for you but please do attach the two photos so I can see what action you can do and I can then show you the steps using Paint Net unless you have Paintshop Pro.
Since Paint Net has changed from Paint Dot Net the links to download seem to be put over several pages and if you don't watch it and not sure which to click on
Here is the actual installer ( zip) add it to a folder and unzip inside that folder. Then add a shortcut to your desktop or taskbar.
download paint.net 4.0.5 zip

click on this linkGimp is also very good but I wouldn't  recommend it to anyone who is a novice as Gimp has a strong learning curb. And can be quite complex.
 Quick example takes a couple of minutes if it needs fixing then takes a longer. This one is mismatched of course the cat ears are sticking up :)
but I can remove them entirely and make it look as if the head belongs there, I can also change the face direction.
