Adding a showerhead to a tub

I am considering renting a flat, but it has only a tub and no shower in it. The estate agent told me i could "easily find an adaptater that link the two taps of the tub to a shower head" that I would then have to fix on the wall. However, my poor english not helping, i really don't know first, if that sort of stuff really exist?? and second, if it does, what is the name for it?

I am not a diy expert so i do not want to destroy the walls, remove the tub, change the whole tap thingy and pipes...

Adding a shower head to a tub

I do not know where UK is but the landlord is supposed to do that.
There should be an opening in the center of the tub fawcet which
allows you to extend a pipe to a regular height where you can install
the shower head. I do not know if the fawcet has a diverter.You have
to break the wall in order to install the pipe.
