I found this engine skid being sold near me. He didn’t know the brand and I can’t find one exactly like this online. He says it it connects to the trans skid and the front lower control arm bolts. Is this a decent style skid?

It looks like a home made copy of Rustys skid. I personally wouldn't use it. The better designed skids run the supports to the motor mounts.

I think it was removed from a fireplace. In Alabama, that's a valid skid plate, or storm shelter lid.

A bad skid can create or amplify vibrations. Choose carefully.

Any skid that protects your oil pan and transmission is a good skid. Hit some rocks or downed trees without one and see.
