You may not be able to get a convesion kit. I tnat case you may need to fill the holes and the redrill them to the correct size. Silver Solder is a good filler. Sorry I cannot help you with the size of drill bit. I would suggest you find one which matches the original hole and then work out the closest you can find which is roughly 45% of the diameter of the original for LPG.

I am aiming to convert my new Range to LP and the first instruction is to remove the storage drawer. It looks to me like it is riveted in. What do I need to do to remove it?

I would check closely to be sure, oftentimes small torx are used. If you need to replace rivets they should be drilled out with a cordless drill and small drill bit at the center of the rivet. You have to go all the way through and then the rivet flange should wedge itself on the drill bit as it passes through. You can replace the rivets will small (self tapping) sheet metal screws of the same hole size to close it back up later. Remember to follow the mfr's instructions precisely when converting from Natural Gas to LP. Check for leaks using soapy water and disconnect the igniter by unplugging the power cord until you are sure it isn't leaking anywhere.

Orange flame

A orange flame means that not enough air is mixing with the gas to produce a nice clean burning blue flame. Try cleaning out any deposits of grease or anything else that could be blocking the air pathway to the flame.

call me. converting a barbecue is simple; the kind of job a tech will get while still in training. The LP hole is smaller than the NG becuse of mass and air-mixture in NG so the orifices have to be plugged and re-drilled or replaced with new LP orifices.

How can i convert a 40 gallon GE Smart Water heater from propane to natural gas?

First thing to do on any gas job is check the fitting line for leaks.
If the piping you are connecting to is "gas tight" then your good to go.
Usually on the compliance plate on the unit there will be a jet sizing chart, find this , it may be on the inside of the cover or on the side at the top.
The jet size for propane is a smaller size orifice than for natural gas,
I use a tiny set of thumb drills to drill the jet to the required size for that burner. (the jets are normally made of brass and are quite easy to drill by hand)
It can be a little bit fiddly actually getting the main burner out of the unit so you can work on the jet. Also very important is that you make sure that you have the exact size drill bit for the jet. Gas appliances can become hazardous if improper jet sizes are fitted!!
This may not be a task for a novice, if in doubt, get a qualified gas fitter to check your work.

all i for sure is that for propane gas you will need smaller burner jets because of the higher pressure. ive done this the other way around, converting from propane to natural gas by drilling the jets bigger with tiny drill bits
