If I've placed a bunch of through-hole components on a board and decide I'd rather have surface mount components instead, how do I switch to the surface mount component footprints of each of my components?

If you design board without schematic, right click in PCB Layout on any pattern you want to change and select "replace pattern" in submenu. Then choose new pattern and change "Apply to" option to "Similar type patterns".

If you design project with schematic, you should replace patterns for all components first, then update layout from schematic.
