You seldom can change just one part on a bicycle. Everything works together so that, when you change one part, something else is almost always affected.
This probably isn't what you want to hear but, if it was my bike, I'd bite the bullet and replace the shifters and brake levers. That's the delux route since you're already upgrading the fork.
You could save a little money by keeping the brake levers that you have now and installing a Travel Agent to solve the cable pull issue. Sometimes you can hacksaw the existing shifters and brake levers apart and only replace the brake levers.
