I gotta be honest, I'm completely lost, I know that a link pin is the easiest to do, but so far, It's looking pretty expensive.

Can anyone tell me exactly what I'll need, or where I'll find a list that'll tell me what i need, to convert to a linkpin, or even ball joint, suspension?

I think your best bet (if you keep the super) would be to get a cage welded in the bug, cut off the complet front end everything from the firewall forward, Run tubes from the front hoop of the cage to whatever style front beem you want dont forget to triangulate, so the front tubes you added dont just flop and bend around. If its just going to be a duner the balljoint should work fine, and is usually easeir to find in good condition cheap, but the linkpin is easier to get travel out of.

the only other problem is the fact of what year super... 73 and later have a huge fish tank window so the one piece front end is useless and would not recomend cutting it that to match the window. doesn't end up right..

Should make a good baja. BJ beams can handle a good deal of abuse. Not as much as a link pin, but enough for the average part time off roader.
