Fireplace rehabilitation in CA

Mr G and I are considering removing the wood-burning stove that inhabits our fireplace. I mean, we want to convert the thing back to a regular fireplace. The first step in attempting to beautify the whole ugly mess. We rarely have a fire.

What do we need to know? If there is a stovepipe inside the chimney would it need to be removed? I'm guessing a damper will have to be added. We'll remove the stove ourselves and then have it inspected by a chimney sweep company.
If you've done this yourself please give us your tips!
