Strictly speaking, "I wish it were me" is correct, but "I wish it was me" is not wrong.

Even more strictly speaking, depending on the case needed in the sentence, it might need to be "I wish it were I."

Who's that?

It's I. OR

It's me.

Again, I is the correct form. However, since we don't have a true disjunctive case for pronouns, it sounds better to many ears to use me.

It's me.
I meant both are used. Strictly speaking again, "It's I" is correct. However, 'It's me", as Philip said, is more commonly used.
