Back up your files from the Windows 7 Ultimate machine using the Windows Easy Transfer Wizard-- START => All Programs => Accessories => System Tools => Windows Easy Transfer. The follow the instructions it gives you.
Then reinstall Windows 7 Home Edition and use the Easy Transfer Wizard to transfer your settings back to your PC.
You wil have to reinstall programs, they cannot be migrated.
