To a first approximation (and relying on my  memory):

Make a list of installed apps: rpm -qa > LIST
Copy LIST to a safe place.
Install (or re-install) Fedora using BTRFS.
Restore user data from backups. Also of course /etc/yum.d/* plus
/usr/local and /opt if you use them.
Install the apps: dnf install $(cat LIST) [may require several
iterations if there are dependency errors]

I did this because I actually wanted a clean install and was starting
from F32. As you already have F33 it may not be strictly necessary as
you can convert ext4 to BTRFS in-place. See btrfs-convert(1).
