This has got to be one of the biggest pains in the rear end I have ever had the pleasure of doing with the engine installed. The alternator/serpentine belt will need to be removed. Right wheel, and inner plastic fenders behind the wheel. Power Steering lines will need to be unbolted and all mounting rods and hardware removed. Return line can be removed when you drop the unit down. The biggest problem I ran into with the replacement was reconnecting the return line. It took me 30 minutes do get the clamp on just right. It is in such a position that I had to use a 2 foot long set of angled needlenose pliers. This was more miserable than replacing the entire engine. Be patient.

Is it possible to convert a car from manual to power steering?

You can do it. I did it on my 1996 Saturn, but I did it while I was changing the engine. The new engine came with a power steering pump, so I also purchased a new power steering rack as well, and while I had the engine out I removed the old manual steering rack and put in the new one, connected the hoses, and voila, I had power steering. I'm not sure all cars are this easy, but my Saturn was. .
