First saltwater tank. (10 gal)

I have a 10 gal planted tank with a betta. It was my first attempt at it and I didn't like the way it turned out. I didn't do much research or put much effort into it. Anyways I want to switch it to a saltwater tank.
I know very little to none about saltwater tanks. I know my stocking ideas are pretty limited but I think it would be a cool tank.
So my first question is, what do I need? All I have is a ten gal tank, with a filter. I know I'll need a lot more.

Second is how much will everything I need cost?

Third, how hard will it be to maintain? I just started school and I'm in hard classes so I am going to be swamped with homework. I also have a 30 gal cichlid tank I gotta take care of.

I have many more questions haha but if you could give me any advice or a good article for starters, that would great
