Location: A little town on the shores of the Great Sacandaga Lake in the "Peoples Republic" of upper NY state http://www.visitsacandaga.com/
Only guessing here, as the possibilities are many!
Why not take cross pieces between the chain link posts and put wood, either slates or panels on them. You can use U bolts to hold the cross pieces to the poles. One on top & bottom or perhaps a middle one in added to the high & the low..
U bolts think items like muffler clamps. You can get all size U bolts at a good big box store.
Edit they make little metal slats that wind through the chain link fence. That should be the easiest/ cheapest way to do what you want!

Done out here quite frequently if not purposely because it's a bitch to replace termite infested wooden posts. Go to HD or Lowes and you should find adapters (Strong Ties) in the lumber area for attaching the rails to the metal posts. If you think there is (or will be at some point - like with a different owner/neighbor or resale) a property line issue, get a quick survey before you start hammering. I've seen stuff get torn down because people got sloppy with where they thought the property line was.
did this two ways
My dad used existing post - fence fell in high wind - he had to extend the shorter post also for the top runner
I took my chainlink down left the old post and put new post inbetween the old post - this way I had double the strength for th first 4 feet - did not drill in smaller post used counduit bracket around post and screwed into 2x4 -
kept same property lines, looks good and strong
