I transferred from the Army National Guard to the Air National Guard. It was a long time ago, but I didn’t think it changed much. For the most part, you should be able to keep the same rank, depending on available slots. I didn’t need to repeat Basic Training, just needed to go to a Tech School (AIT) for the AFSC (MOS) that I was transferring to. It was a culture shock going through an Air Force School. I’m not 100% sure if you have to go through Tech School if you are transferring to the same job, like MP to Security Forces. No regrets though, just like anything, it is what you make of it. If you don’t like the job you’re in, look for another career. There’s always options and opportunities if you look for them. Good luck.

I'm currently dealing with the opposite ordeal.. I'm trying to go Air National Guard to Army national guard. You think it would be a pretty reasonable transition if you're unhappy in the current service and really have the desire to continue serving in another. But, according to people who have tried it comes down to whether leadership needs you or not.
