The visa that can be "converted" in-country is the 60-day visa that you must apply for at the Taiwan defacto embassy in your area.
There is something of a song and dance routine to go through when first arriving here. The TECO will tell you that you must get all resident visas etc through them but, on the other hand, no employer will hire you and process you from overseas. You have to masquerade as a tourist, get a 60-day visa and do your resident visa process from here.
