I am pretty sure the Rolls Royce RB211 can be used on both as well. For the most part I believe it is as simple as a circuit board change when swapping an engine from a B767 to a B747 (v'v'). I am not sure whether airlines do this as standard maintenance practice though?

This is the reason why airlines like United have ordered P&W 4000 series engines on their 747-400s and 767-200/300s so they can swap these engines on both types of aircraft. The same goes for airlines with GE CF6s like KLM, Air France, Alitalia, Lufthansa and American and Rolls Royce RB211s like Qantas and British Airways.

" The RB.211 is NOT offered on the DC-10, 767 "
yes the RB.211 is available on the 767. BA and a Chinese airline operate them , as well as Quantas, who are leasing / bying ex-BA aircraft.
if you don`t believe me CPDC10-30, check boeing.com
or britishairways.com for engines on the 767.

whats been said about being able to swap PW4000s between the 744 and 767 is correct, only change is connecting up the second hydraulic system to the engine and the 767, and a minor circuit swap. (all PW4000s have 2 hydraulic feeds, 747 only uses 1 per engine though, the other is left sealed)
