Hello 
It is not difficult to complete. I would thoroughly plan, put all on paper and get it done. 
1. What you have currently
2.What you Plan to add 
3. Check this NetApp KB Hot-add a shelf - shelves with IOM12 modules (netapp.com)
It is fairly simple task.

Also I would think how you gonna use it:   
- are you going to add to existing aggregates 
- create brand new aggregates
