    You get a LP conversion kit from a dealer who sells that brand of fireplace. Preferably you should have them install it and do a full inspection of the unit also.

    Talking let the pro do it

    you may rquire new orifices in pilot in main burner and new spring in gas valve.... a pressure test on manifold should be done after all parts installed to insure proper setting..

    Conversion to LP is not a big deal at all, as far as the fireplace itself. If the gas plumbing to the fireplace is already figured out, no worries.
