Pretty much the second pet of your question holds your answer.
However, first things first; go buy yourself the Catechism of the Catholic Church and a Catholic Bible. I recommend the Ignatuis Catholic Bible (Revised Stabdard Version Catholic Edition) as the RSVCE is the English translation used for all the references in the Catechism. As an added bonus start listening to the Sheen Catechism:, which is 24 hours worth of solid Catholic instruction presented in 50 30-minute episodes.
Next, go to your local parish and ask to speak with the priest. They'll likely go over your reasons for wanting to convert and invite you the participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
This will take some time so be patient as most adults receiving confirmation, converts and catechumens are received into the Church on Easter Vigil (beautiful Mass).
God bless you! You'll be in my prayers.
If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to ask.
