Very hard, and very expensive, I'll bet.

You probably have to swap/add/remove the following at least:

Trans, axle shafts, ecu, trim inside car around shifter area, shift linkages and mechanism, pedal assembly...

Sell the auto, take the proceeds and buy a similar vintage stick shift. That is, unless you have lots of free time, and a source of junkyard parts that are good for next to free, and you are real good at this kind of thing.

Something like this, but more work since it's OBD2
