The 'easiest' way would be to install YaBB and set it up the way you want it.

Then put your old SMF forum into 'archive mode' - turn off registration, remove permissions for anyone but the admin and possibly a global moderator to make any posts, send PMs, or modify anything and then direct your members to join the YaBB forum. They should still be able to read what's on the old forum and link to posts there if they need to continue a conversation.

Once you have a working YaBB forum, you should be able to download your message and members data from your old forum to deconstruct and reconstruct them into YaBB's formatting.

  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!
