Ok, before someone comes in here to castrate you, it's VTEC, wiht no "H".

Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control

Now, as for your question, yes, you can make your motor vtec with a head swap. The only thing is that the Mini-ME, as it's called, isn't really worth it on the 1.7. Your Dx/Lx has 117Hp I think. A mini me is only gonna net you 8-10 Hp. Not really worth it for the time and money of a head swap, from what I understand.
