Wordpress Domain Name/Transfer

I have a wordpress website that is live using a domain name. I would like to have a secondary domain name I own setup to become the main domain name. I believe this will require godaddy admin access to point the new domain name to the current hosting? The wordpress install will need to be modified so that the database refers to the new domain name being used. I would also like you to create a .htaccess file to let search engines know to forward the search results to new pages. I don't want the domain name switch to have as little down time or effect SEO so a .htaccess file should help resolve this?

I may not have all of the proper steps down so I'm open to suggestions on how to quickly and most efficiently make the switch so our website will point to our new domain and to setup a .htaccess file to insure our Google search results point to the new website's URL's.

I will supply you with godaddy admin access and ftp access once you're awarded the job. Thank you for your interest!
