You can just change the data directory. It is not difficult at all. I assume you are using Windows (you should switch to Linux btw) from your post so you will probably need to learn how to add an argument to your Bitcoin Core shortcut, that you click on when you are starting Bitcoin. I can't really help you with this part, as I didn't use Windows for years, but I am sure that there are plenty of tutorials on the Internet. Just type the name of your Operating system with "add argument to shortcut" or something like that and you will probably be done in few minutes.
