This is a really good decision you're making, one that I've been thinking about myself. I mostly play (90% of the time) tourneys, but the few times I play ring games its been NL. The truth is everyone should learn the limit game first, consider that most semipros make their money in this setting. If you master the limit game and get to play even at $3/$6 on a regular basis poker can make you a nice income.
To answer your question about the adjustments you need to make, I think for one it depends on what limit you intend to start with, and also if you're going to try the shorthanded tables or the full ones. The one thing I'd suggest you to do is read Sklansky's book "Holdem poker for advanced players", although recently I read in the blog an article from F Paulsson where he says that this book is now a little outdated for how limit is played on-line, at least at the higher limits.
Probably the best advice I can give you is to PM FP, since he's the best limit player in the forum. He'll tell you which books to read and at what limits its best you start at, with the bigger adjustments you need to make from NL. Nothing substitutes experience, so the more you play the better you'll get, but having a nice head start reading the right books and playing the limits that better fit you is an advantage.
