This will be pretty difficult because as far as I know the HTC Keyboard relies on some Libaries from HTC Sense which is not open source. So you would have to port these Libs to Stock Android which is difficult without the source code. I had an Evo 3D too and I hated that Keyboard. Try some other Play Store Keyboards (I am using Swiftkey for example). There is a Sense 6 Rom in Development right now (NexSense), but it is a very early alpha with many functions not working.

I think there are some HTC like Keyboards in the playstore too.

EDIT: You can try this port if you want (don't know if it works):
★ PHONE: LG NEXUS 5 - 16 GB Black
★ ROM + KERNEL: CarbonROM | KK 4.4.4 | Chaos Kernel

★ PHONE: HTC EVO 3D GSM | S-OFF / Revolutionary | Radio 11.73.3504_00P
★ ROM + KERNEL: Cyanogenmod 10.2 | JB 4.3.1 | MiRaGe Kernel

Yeah that's right. On the desire, the HTC ime required nothing but from around the time of the sensation, it became framework dependant. I missed the HTC ime so much on my S3, I tried every keyboard on play to find one close to it. Smart keyboard was the closest I found and used it on my n5 too up to about a week ago. The prediction isn't great and it wore me down after about a year but it's worth a try
