I heard a rumor that wag will be remodeling the whole chain to the wellness format in the next 2 years. Anybody know more about this?

No. Depends on the state and its laws. They wiil remodel cities at the same time to save on costs like they did with Indy and somewhere in the southwest. I personally think they are trying to figure out if this will be profitable or not and think it will only add to costs and problems and this idea will go away like most of their other dumb ideas.

. I disagree. All the new stores they are building now are wellness stores

Any word if there will be a conversion team made up of store employees, like during CCR? If so, where do I sign up?

It was an outside company hired with a Walgreens employee (EXA, MGT or STL) that made sure they stayed on task, things were done in an organized manner and lived up to Walgreens standards/expectations. They helped answer questions/fix planograms/order expense items for the store. They also served as the go between for a Corporate Walgreens employee, store management and construction.
Not every store in Indianapolis got the Walgreens employee and suffered for it.
The remodel might be somewhat like CCR, but in the Wellness stores that were completely remodeled, you were moving entire departments and piecemealing things together as much as possible to not disrupt customers experience as much as possible. It took a lot of problem solving.

It would be more like the floor refresh program. SFL/MGT working 3rds over the conversion so the construction crews will work overnight. Pharmacist on 3rds in non-24 hour stores when they do any work in the pharmacy.
