Kier posted an explanation as to why this is technically infeasible.

[...] I've said it before but I'll say it again, asking to be able to transform a forum into a category in XenForo and vice versa is akin to saying that you've just posted a message on someone's profile and then wanting to be able to turn that message into a personal conversation instead, along with the option to turn it back into a profile post again. The data is fundamentally different, and simply cannot be switched back and forth as you desire. [...]

Thanks Shadab!

I have replied in the thread you linked to. Because even though it might not be techincally possible to simply change the type of an node, there is a solution to this (useability) issue.
