You do no need to convert. Make sure the Fire is registered to the account where the books are purchased. Then just sync them to the Fire.

It's likely you won't get much help here, as it seems you're unwilling to say where you download your books from. Your posts are vague, and somewhat difficult to understand.

Mobile Read users aren't keen on helping people with book piracy. If that's not what you're doing, give some understandable details.

If your friend sent you a book file with DRM, then there's no way you can convert it. The DRM must be removed by the person who purchased the book.

For your son, buy eBooks using the Amazon account that the Fire is registered to. Then you can download them to the Fire for him to read. No need to convert and they are legal eBooks.

Also, if you are in the USA and have access to a library that has Overdrive, you can borrow Kindle eBooks.
