Is this possible to swap the thread of a flip-flop in a Formula hub with the one of another one?

Are you asking if you can put the threads from one hub on another hub?

Just buy a whole new hub with the appropriate threading.......for whatever you're trying to accomplish.
What are you trying to accomplish by this? The threads are machined into the hub body. I suppose you could have a hub re-cut to the smaller diameter, but you end up with a weakened hub that doesn't fit anything.
Are you talking about the difference between ISO threaded hub and Italian threaded cog? If so, then just screw the cog on to reform the hub threads and then never switch back to an ISO threaded cog.

I'm sorry never mind.
What happened is that I received this wheelset and the thread of one side of thr flip-flop got damaged in the way.
I was thinking that maybe I could it and just take the thread from my present wheels and put it there.
I just thought I'd ask even though it was far fetched. I just need to return it.

chase the threads
Ehh it's not such a weird question for a noob to ask. The answer of course is that the hub body is all one piece with mutiple mechanical functions (hold bearing races, keep spoke tension, keep cog and lockring secure, transmit torque, (?), and if any one of those functions goes the whole thing is toast.
