    Is there any way possible to convert SAV files to different regions(E/U/J) of the same ROM? I just don't want to lose my progress.

    Tried that first, it didn't work even after I renamed the SAV so that it was the same as the other ROM.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just continue playing the version you started?

    Yes, converting saves depends on what game are you using, if it's Pokemon then changing the name of the SAV file should do the trick.
