Look inside of the cups and try to read if there's manufacturer or model names or numbers. Without knowing what kind of a diabolo we are talking about it's impossible to say if it can be even converted. Obviously anything can be converted given time, tools and skill but if there are no existing parts you will get a new one for much easier and cheaper.

If you cannot find out what it is then good alternative is that you take a picture of it and post it here. We might recognize it from the picture...

Doesn't look familiar to me. Does anybody else recognize the model?

Chinese rip off of a Henrys Jazz?

I doubt you'll be able to convert that in any straightforward way.
