These are two different viruses. Are you asking if HPV can morph into HIV? No.

However, having HPV does not preclude someone from also picking up HIV; this would depend on what risky behavior they engage in.

Keep in mind that HPV only requires contact with skin for transmission as opposed to HIV which requires ENTRANCE into the body for transmission. Thus, HPV is a FAR more common virus.
