How can I change an existing JIRA Project to a Scrum Project

I have a Project that was set up as a Kanban Project or a Basic Project.  I would like to make that Project a Scrum Project.

Technically, you don't really need to, the Scrum/Kanban choice is purely to ask what else you want to create for the project and set up the right fields. 

But you should swap the project from "Business" to "Software" in the project header.

Once you've done that, just create a Scrum board and tell it to look at the project.

You may need to fiddle with field setup if you want to use story points etc.
