Question
How can I convert H2B visa to F1. i still have 4 months on H2B. Can i get the F1 stamp in US without going to my home country

Answer
Kabir,
You can convert to F-1.  The process is usually done through the university once you have been admitted.  You should not have to go to your home country to get the F-1 stamped.  You could go to a US consulate either in Mexico or Canada for stamping and I would suggest that you check the consulates website to see what documents you should bring for your stamping.
Good Luck
