No A diesel engine cannot be retrofitted with LPG.
Conversion to LPG requires a petrol engine, as the LPG gas has similar characteristics to vaporised fuel. LPG gas also requires an ignition system, furthermore the compression pressures of the diesel engine are too high, the gas would ignite uncontrollably.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
No that diesel engines can be retrofitted is completely unknown to me.
The diesel engine has a much too high compression pressure, the gas would already start to burn before the piston would be above. Furthermore the diesel engine has no bore for spark plugs. Also the retrofitting of an ignition system is technically very difficult.
As far as the recommendation of a converter is concerned, I can unfortunately not recommend a workshop.
