You need to have a tuner and a compatible bin to flash it. In short, it's not that easy (or cheap). If you think you need a new PCM (which is doubtful) consider getting one from a vendor that will be ready to install without any issues.

If your located in Arkansas or Oklahoma i'll be glad to flash it for you.
I don't do mail-order stuff but if your local I don't mind helping out if you wanna stop by.

PCM's from aftermarket vendors are around $100 and come all flashed and ready for install. Much cheaper than buying one used & untested and having a tune out into it.

if you don't want to go after market, and you don't have the stuff, your only other option is the stealership. That might get expensive.
