changing radiator system

I currently have a "open" radiator system with a overflow tank that goes to the ground when full.To move to a "closed" system I was thinking to plug the tube to the ground of the tank and add a vent to the top. Will this work ? What type of vent is needed ? Does the rad cap need to be replaced to a different type ?

Yes, radiator caps with overflow tank are different.
