IOS>LWAPP, you use cisco's upgrade tool

CiscoAironet-AP-to-LWAPP-Upgrade-Tool-v34.exe

LWAPP>IOS, from WLC's CLI you do:

"config ap tftp-downgrade "

it will automatically tftp the image and reboot the AP with the autonomous IOS image

When doing the downgrade from the controller, will the AP keep it's IP address and/or hostname?

It doesn't act like holding in the mode button does it? In other words, it will download with current IP address, not boot it into a 10.0.0.1 address and look for the default tar file?

Would they be able to be converted to IOS remotely without losing connection?

No it won't.

Yes, thanks!

But unfortunately it seems that I can't download the Images (probably because of my Guest-Level access?!).

Convert it again to LWAP and back to Autonomous using the Conversion Tool. During the conversion, make sure that the Autonomous AP and the conversion tool can ping the WLC's management IP Address.
