You have to buy new bars stem levers brake and shift and all 4 cables , perhaps the buying another bike will be better
A straight bar Hybrid to trekking bar conversion is a lot easier.

the trekking bar, figure 8 bend, has a near and far reach that offers a lot of the body posture changes of drop bars.
Moustache bars offer the same sweep and multiple hand positions as a trekking bar but you can keep your road bike shifter/brakeset. It would be positioned so you can easily shift and brake as you ride. Its kind of a north roads bar for a road bike.
