Do you mean convert the physical motor from a stepper to a regular dc motor, or do you mean convert code written for a stepper to driving a regular dc motor?

how did you end up with a stepper if you wanted a two wire bipolar? Since you have the stepper you might as well use the well documented Arduino code to run it, or just buy a bipolar. There may be a way to run it using two wires, but I never saw any code to do it. It is designed to have the internal coils fire in sequence. Trying to make it a bipolar defeats what it was designed for ( precision positioning).

You can't; two completely different motor types - forget it.

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.
