What brand boiler do you have? You can always look up install manuals from the manufacture.

That is something that is not for the faint of heart. Even experienced heating pipefitters do not always do it properly.

just eliminate the outside loop that feeds a water heater.
the 1" recommendation is not needed. 3/4 will be fine.
the water temperature limit is so when only the baseboard zone is calling for heat, the main operating control will not make steam.
so, the piping is simple but the wiring is more complex.
