    I've never heard of any file called that, but as to converting it you can right-hand click the file and choose Get Info..., you can change the extension (basically just the file type) there. I'm not sure how you would open it though.

    That's not a file.

    It's literally a padding file.

    Created by BitComet which is known for polluting torrents with that junk.

    Do you know what the file contains? Is it a movie?

    It probably is what it's name suggest: just a "placeholder" for the real content.

    Before you go on any further please check the size of the file...

    If it is zero as I am suspecting, converting it to anything would be pointless ...
