I have 2 db schema (source and destination). I would like to convert the source schema to destination schema by providing sync script. What are the steps I need to perform such as Remove the constraints, perform datatype change, Delete all indexes, Delete FKs, Delete PKs and so on and in which order? I know some tools are there in market. But my customers don't accept it. How to  perform in T-SQL? Please assist.

It would be great if the sql scripts are run in order using SSIS package. Could you please suggest how to achieve this?

I know the question is big and hard one. Please bear with me and provide your solution.

So...you need to build an "Upgrade" script for your customers right?
I warmly suggest start using SSIS because it ofers workflow/decision control and you can stop/resume for instance a broken upgrade easily. I would start by creating the SQL scripts I need to run then put them in SQL Task Steps inside the SSIS package where you can control as mentioned the flow and have a config file as well from where you could read in certain values at the begining of the Upgrade like: Customer ServerName, DBName, DBVersion, Loginid, password, etc...

And to be speciffic for "How to prepare schema sync scripts?" you must roll up your sleeves and start writting T-SQL ALTER ... commands.
