Much easier to replace the mechanical pump with another rather than convert. You would need a relay, fuse, wiring, new tank, return line. And it doesn't seem you've proven that it's at fault. There could be a clog, a bad filter. Also, hot start trouble has many causes that may have nothing to do with the fuel system. I'd do more diagnostics first and then look at replacing the OEM pump with another one if called for.
