I don't really have much to add -- my diet has been almost completely vegetarian in the past and these days most of my breakfasts and dinners are vegetarian, but that's mostly because I have unusual food preferences and don't really like to cook.
One piece of advice I do have is to be careful about increasing vegetables, fruits and beans -- if you're significantly increasing the amount of fiber in your diet, you'll want to do it gradually to avoid GI problems.
I guess another thing I would add is that a plant-based diet can still be very unhealthy (french fries are vegetarian!!), but since you're talking about cutting back on both protein and fats, you seem to already have that in mind.
