R53 brake upgrade

I've recently purchased a set of front r56 calipers/carriers along with discs and pads to upgrade my standard r53 discs I have.

However I'm unsure as to what else I'm needing in terms of type of brake hoses ie r53 or r56 and which connections, brake fluid type and how much and whether I need new brake pad wear sensor cables, clips springs etc..

I'd be really grateful if someone could give me a detailed despription of exactly what I need to complete the job properly as I don't want to start doing it and find missing things.
