I assume what you mean is you want to switch to a collaboration  portal
site definition. Unfortunately, you can't switch site  definitions after
a site has been provisioned. But since Site Definitions are made up
primarily from Features you can activate and deactivate the appropriate
Features to accomplish the same thing. In this case the problem is that
a collaboration portal is actually a collection of sites. So to switch
a Team Site over to the equivalent of a Collaboartion Portal you need to
do several things.

1) Turn on Publishing Infrastructure at the site collection level
and Publishing at the site level

2) Create the other sites in the collaboration portal like the News
site, Document Center, and Sites Directory

3) Create a new Welcome page based on the Welcome Layout page and
use it as the Welcome page to the site.

I think those are the primary differences.
