is there any specific best practices on how and when to change page verification in MSSQL from torn page to checksum - and any specific precautions we should take before/after if it causes issues? is it a lengthy process to change or a very "quick fix"

Quick - the setting is applied only if the page is changed. No precaution. checksum is the recommended page verification method as it is better for detecting damaged pages.
You just set it at the database level (database properties).
