Yes. Some breakers will fit in other panels but they wont make good contact. Ive seen busses melt from the wrong breaker being installed.

Is this a detached garage? If so, you need to add ground rods (2).

In the panel, you also need to separate the neutrals and grounds, that's why the 4 wire feed. You'll need to add a ground bus and make sure the neutral bus is not bonded to the panel.
