I believe we can withdraw some amount from our IRA's every year and convert to a Roth.

Yes you can, and this is a good year to do it with no RMD requirement.

What are the mechanics?

Assuming your Roth and T IRA are with the same institution, then the process should be easy. They should have a single form you complete to facilitate the transfer directly from one account to the other.

Can any part of my RMD be used to fund a Roth?

No, but as stated above, there is no RMD this year. Assuming RMDs are back next year, you can still perform a rollover but only with funds in excess of the RMD amount.
