Default Convert Halogen To HID

So my passenger headlight plastic was not clear and it bothered me so I bought one on eBay only difference is that this headlight is halogen & my headlight is stock hid so how to I convert it? Do I just remove everything from hid and screw it on New headlight is that possible? Or do I have to take apart both and switch the plastic cover instead what's easier?

Nope. I converted two halogens into full Xenons. The ballasts have a gasket to make that hole air tight.

Make sure the ballasts come with that rubber gasket/ring.
