You will have to change the mount unless it is spot on vertical and far enough away from the wall to allow the dish to rotate without hitting the wall.

So a set of T K brackets and a pole that you have to make sure is vertical. And a DiSEqC motor.

Your receiver can control this motor.

That's it your existing dish and LNB should be OK.

Now all you have to do is set it up - plenty of help here.

PLus a couple of "F" plugs, you will have to split the co-ax from the lnb to the receiver to go into and out of the motor. Also some nice rawlbolts to fix the "T&K's" to the wall.
