Default Re: firewire connection to USB? Or Other?

USB cannot be converted to Firewire.

Any computer with PCIe card slots can have a Firewire PCIe card installed in them.

Any computer with Thunderbolt 1/2/3 can use a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter. (Thunderbolt is *not* USB, even if it uses a USB-C connector)

You need to be more specific. Are you on Windows or Mac? (Windows I assume from this forum, but please confirm--windows desktop or laptop choices with Thunderbolt are few and far between). Are you looking at desktop/deskside computers that have PCIe slots? ... what exact ones? ... Or is it time to replace the interface?
