Still, there are reasons why one might want to change and extension and *not* change the format. We’ll see what the OP says if they decide to respond to the thread.
If you want to convert textfiles, I think pandoc is a great and eminently straightforward solution. It’s a command line utility; all you have to do is type in the arguments, and your file is converted in a snap. Of course there’s no GUI – if that’s scary, I guess you might want to try one of those other solutions.
Still, the OP was about extensions only so let’s see.

It sounds as though those utilities actually convert the files from one format to another. I don’t know if any information such as formatting may be lost or changed, but if you want to have a different format file, that’s the way to do it. Changing the extension means you have a file of one kind matched with an incorrect extension.
changing the format means the file extension and the format of the file match.
