    Is there any way to use a wireless Xbox 360 controller with a PS3? I know there are ways to use the wired 360 version, but can't find a method for wireless. Thanks.

    You either need to use CFW which still has to be wired or get a CronusMax.

    I've read some reviews on CronusMax that state it's rather tough to use. What exactly makes the process so complicated? Also I read something about wireless controllers requiring a micro usb cable. Is this true?

    PS3's wireless protocol is bluetooth, the 360's wireless protocol is radio frequency.
    Even with CFW, it's completely impossible to use a wireless 360 controller on the PS3 without extra hardware.

    Is cronusmax the only device that would serve the wireless 360 to ps3 purpose? Cronusmax seemingly has a reputation as a tough to use device.

    Seems like it yes.
    Unless you can write a driver for the wireless adapter that's used on PC.

    Is it easy to open up controllers and replace a/b/x/y buttons? I have a used 360 controller I got for free and wouldn't be opposed to trying to figure out how to put the 360 a/b/x/y buttons in the ps3 controller. I couldn't find any videos on youtube to figure out how to do it.

    It's impossible.
    The buttons on the 360 and PS3 controller are completely different.

    Really? Because I also have a nvidia shield portable and people have talked about swapping shield buttons for 360 buttons.

    If the plastic molding of the Shield is the same as the 360, then it's possible
