I like the finish of Sonnet Rollerball I found online. But since I prefer fountain pens, my question is, can I buy rollerball and replace the grip section with the fountain pen section?

You can, but you might have to remove a spring or bumper from the barrel to allow a converter to fit.  If you do this just sell or otherwise get rid of the rollerball section.  I have several Sonnet rollerballs and all the refills, all genuine Parker refills, dried up fairly quickly.
