you can have a cam that is flat tappet -hydraulic or solid..
you can have cam that is roller tappet -hydraulic or solid..

you may be able to
switch between hydraulic OR solid lifters.. if there the same style flat tappet or roller,,
depending on the cam, not recommended without professional help..

but you can not
switch between flat tappet lifters or roller lifters,, the cam lobe is totally different..

heres some readin and pics..
