Loads of threads on this site with mountains of info on conversions. Use the search bar above.
Basically for the front wheel you have 2 options. 1/ Keep the bearings in the wheel and change the axle to the later 25mm one or 2/ keep your axle and swap the bearings for the earlier 1" bearings. In either case you will need to fit your brake rotors to the NRS wheel as the later rotors are bigger, or swap brake calipers for the later type.
As far as the rear is concerned just depends what you want and how big your budget is. From cheapest, just a tyre swap to a 200. Or medium cost budget upgrade to the 240 (search "budget 240 conversion") or go the whole hog to a 300 or 330 or 360 all of which require serious modifications that don't come cheap.
