How to convert this to pvc?

Want to replace sink drain to pvc. P trap going into wall won't be changed.

Is that curved piece an S bend? Are these pretty standard items HD should carry?

Since they use compression fittings, sealant isn't necessary, correct? Is there anything I can do to protect the threads on my large pipe drain from corrosion?

Welcome any other suggestions I may be missing. Thank you.

Assuming that the sink drain is further out than the current trap, it is possible that you can change out to PVC. The issue is that a PVC trap takes up more room than the trap you currently have. Measure out to the drain center from the back wall and see if the math works out. My guess is that you will most likely use a compression fitting set up rather than a solvent welded one.

Yes, sink drain is about an inch further out past large drain.

Will I find the similar s bend pipe at home depot?

Space is not an issue lol. Plenty of room down there and well concealed.

If you convert to a compression drain, you don't need a downspout that bends as the horizontal member that goes into the wall should be long enough to reach without a bend. Based on the pictures shown, you will need:

Tail pipe extension (or 2)
Trap
Trap adapter to screw onto the nipple coming out of the wall.
