I will be receiving a bolt that has been nickel plated (for what reason they plated it in the first place is beyond me).
I was wondering how difficult it would be to have the plating removed so that I can get the bolt reparkerized ?

A plater should only charge about $30 to remove whatever it's plated with. I wouldn't think you could buy whatever materials you'd need for much less than that. Send it to the right shop, and they can park it for you after they strip the plating.

I think a completely hard chromed M1A/M14 in a USGI fiberglass stock painted black might look kinda cool, you would probably have the only one. With a slotted handguard, leave the sights parkerized and get some of the stainless mags from CMI.
