Am Classic Carbon Shimano wheel convert to Campy

Just won a pair on wheels of ebay. It's Shimano, I have campy. Want to see what my options are and what it would cost me.

1) Am Classic conversion Cassete ($70ish) - Can anyone tell me how these perform? I plan to use my old wheels (Campy) and switch them as necessary. Wondering if that would be a factor.
2) Changing the hub (or just the spline?) - the wheels come with ceramic bearings (not sure if that matters) so not sure if changing the hub would be a bad idea.

Thoughts very much welcome.

What kind of wheels? Some mfg's make Campy and Shimano cassette hub bodies. It might be as easy as swapping cassette hubs. More information is needed. Good luck
