Modifying NELO theme to make intro header into slider

Hi there,

I'd love help on modifying the NELO theme so the intro header is a slider. I've seen past support topics on this question (https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/installing-slider-on-homepage), but none that address modifying the theme to use with the Smooth Slider plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/smooth-slider/screenshots/).

Advice is greatly appreciated.
