It's not going to be possible to directly convert pathfinder to W&W because the systems have different design goals. However, it is possible to convert/adapt the characters and the story to the W&W system and go from there. One of the major issues is level, because W&W doesn't have character level, it has power level and these are not the same thing. A first level pathfinder character can still be a competent, though beginning, hero. A PL1 W&W character is a barmaid at best. So if you want to convert the concept, it is completely doable.
