Not an SKS good sir, that is a Saiga rifle. Little more than a re-stocked AKM, they put that furniture on there to get it legal for importation to the states(it's a hunting rifle, not an assault rifle at this point). Most owners of Saigas pull that stuff off when they get them and put the proper AK furniture on it.

Incorrect good sir. They make Saigas in many different calibers and gauges. .410, 20, and 12 gauge in shotgun, and 5.45x39, .223, 7.62x39, and .308 in rifle calibers. Judging solely by the seemingly thin, ribbed magazine, it's probably a rifle in .223 or 7.62x39, since only really those in the know pick 5.45.
....I'm studying to become a gunsmith, it's kinda my passion in life. I like things that go boom.

The receivers are different lengths for the most part, except for the .223, 5.45 and 7.62x39. different length cartridges require longer magazines, and as such longer magazine wells. In theory it can be done, but the barrel is screwed in and headspaced to the bolt(too much headspace will damage the rifle, not enough and the bolt won't close, and firing will damage the user). It's not a job meant for a novice gunsmith, and for the cost, you'd be better off buying another Saiga. If you want modularity, I'd recommend a gas-piston AR. Two pins and you have the choice of any number of calibers to suit anything from home defense, hunting, plinking. Really only limited by your imagination on that end.

Takes more than that. Handguns are easy to interchange calibers since the barrel usually isn't permanently fixed to the frame like they are on rifles. I say usually because Blowback-operated semi-autos and the grand majority of revolvers are quite the opposite(the barrel is permanently attached. Some models do have interchangeable barrels, but that's usually the exception to the rule).
For a handgun, take my 1911 Commander for pure example, I can switch it from .45 auto to .38 super with no problems. Take it apart, replace the barrel, recoil spring, and magazine. You basically just have to field strip a handgun to replace the vital parts and make it a whole new animal, whereas it's much more in-depth on a rifle. Rifles require a proper sized barrel wrench and liberal amounts of elbow grease, to unscrew the barrel from the receiver. From there you have to get the new barrel, screw it into the receiver, time it to the receiver(so the bolt will headspace properly, and then headspace it to the correct bolt.
As I said, rechambering a rifle is a very in-depth procedure that isn't for the novice gunsmith.

Rifles like that are the exception to the rule, as the company that makes them had barrel modularity a priority from the get-go. Those require far simpler tools and less work to change barrels on, and the bolts are usually mated to the barrels they go to, meaning no problems with headspacing. If you're talking a cookie cutter com-bloc rifle though, that's an entirely different animal.
