when you have already script for SGE, why do you want to use PBS (the  
commercial PBS or Torque?).

There are features in SGE, which are not avaiable in PBS, so you  
would have to adjust your scripts. This depends on the features which  
the scripts are using.

Do you know any of both from the view of an administrator? The  
installation of SGE is not a big deal, but it can be customized in  
many ways. It might even be necssary to set it up in such a way, that  
the script's expectations are met.

Root access you need for both (to install it for all users). If you  
are alone and want to run serial jobs only, then SGE can even be  
installed under a user account.
