So I recently got an AAN-swapped '91 90 and am trying to figure out how to get AC installed. The engine bay has some room underneath the turbo or under the intake manifold, but not sure what people recommend here. Anyone have any ideas?

Here's a shot of the engine bay:

You will need a quite few things to make it work.
just a few:
Very early 90 and cq had an AC line that was routed out to the fender and back, you will need that.
3B oil filter housing (if you want to install the compressor on the passenger side)
Condenser, dryer, sensor/switch, ac lines.

Not that easy to do.

I could probably customize the lines? I think I'd just need the condensor, dryer, sensor/switch, and then run lines where I can?

I am wondering if it makes sense to find a donor car or of this can be done totally custom.
