This answer https://answers.splunk.com/answers/87682/convert-a-stand-alone-splunk-instance-to-a-dedicated-indexe... should get you started. In your case you will want to copy the VM rather than create a new search head, but the rest of the steps apply. You'll also want to delete the indexed data that was copied from indexer to SH.
