I replaced XP with Mint some time back and found it very straightforward. I used a DVD rather than USB stick but I wouldn't think that makes a big difference, if any. The official user guide MC mentions looks pretty long but it's quite easy to follow. There are some thing *might* want to do when it's installed:

Switch on the Uncomplicated Firewall via Gufw
Update Mint and installed programs
Set screen res
Install MS fonts
Install Aisleriot Solitaire!
Replace the square icons with the more familiar round ones
Set the default language to e.g. British English
Assign symbol to keyboard key
Set LibreOffice Calc F4 key to Repeat

They're all pretty straightforward, too.
