If I want to transform a normal acoustic into a baritone.. what would I have to do besides stringing it with baritone strings?

you cant do it with a normal acoustic guitar. A baritone guitar requires that you have a giant scale length. Also, the bracing in a Baritone guitar is strengthened because they use even thicker strings than an acoustic guitar.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

I believe Andy Mckee's "Ebon Coast" is played Baritone, it can sound similar.
Martin DX1
79' Strat with original 1972 maple neck w/bullet truss / Lace Sensor Golds
93' Strat mahogany neck with Lace Sensor Silver.
Blackface Fender Twin
Lots of pedals..

But andy mckee owns a custom made baritone guitar, they have (as is already mentioned) a much longer scale.
