convert from 45 to 9x23

What does it take to convert a 45 ACP gun to 9x23. I know 38 super slide/ 9x23 barrel and new bushing and slide internals and I assume a 38 super slide stop, change the ejector and some mags. Is the feed ramp on the 45 ACP correct to use with an unramped 9x23 barrel?

Ok, I have talked to a number of knowledgable pistolsmiths on this subject. Here is the run down:
Get 9mm/38 super top end with internals
Change the ejector to 9mm/38 super
Use a ramped barrel
Cut the 45 ACP frame to accept the ramped barrel
Put it together
test it
refinish it
