Description  : Alien is a program that converts between the rpm, dpkg, stampede
             : slp, and Slackware tgz file formats. If you want to use a package
             : from another distribution than the one you have installed on your
             : system, you can use alien to convert it to your preferred package
             : format and install it.

for detailed information:
man alien
(assuming you have installed it)

to install alien:
sudo dnf install alien

to convert .deb to .rpm:
alien --to-rpm package-0.5.0.deb
where package-0.5.0.deb is the debian package you want to convert

Disclaimer:
Using alien to convert .deb to .rpm is not foolproof. In the end, a package built specifically for a distro is often more compliant to standards defined for that target distro.
