I realize that this question is odd but I'm looking to upgrade the wheels/hubs of my 6 year old's 20" bike. He uses a coaster brake but all of the high quality hubs are either cassettes or freewheel.

Is it possible to turn a freewheel hub into a coaster brake hub? If so, how do I do it?

Nope, you have one or the other. I would suggest working on using a handbrake (maybe add one to the bike for him to try it out) and eventually he will no longer use the pedal brake, you could swap out then.
