what needs to be done (apart from restring it) if i want it to be playable right handed? does it affect how easy it is to play? there's people who do it and it doesn't really look like it has much of a difference....

Yes, changing the strings would help, a lot.

Still, some guitar bridges/nuts are pre-shaped for left handed use (and thus, strings). Fitting the strings the other way around may cause the strings to slip in and out of their slots.

A new nut is usually needed, but a bridge could work either way around.
The nut will need to be changed and the intonation and action will need to be adjusted, but it should work fine other than that.
dont forget to drill new holes for strap holders
