You could start by reading the documentation and watching some of the video's   http://www.machsupport.com/help-learning/  then if you have any specific questions regarding the setting-up and operation of Mach3 we would be pleased to provide an answer.

It will depend on what you're actually converting.

If it's something with a parallel port, simply install windows 7 32bit or earlier, followed by Mach 3 with the parallel port driver, then it's just a case of changing the settings to suit your machine.
However, if it's something not using the parallel port, then it will depend on exactly what boards/controllers are being used.
