Is there a way I can modify my evolution wand to have t-jets?

I'm not sure there is, but I can really only think of one reason why you would want to in the first place. Is it because the T-jets have a filter or something else? I personally wouldn't have a wand w/o filters inside the jets as well as check valves. I hate leaky jets and I hate jets that get clogged easily. There are check valves for v-jets and filters available if you didn't know that. I'm just throwing this out there because I really can't see any advantage to what you're wanting to do otherwise.

That's it exactly. Constantly having to clean them out. Thx for the V jet filters tip. I'll take a look into that right now.

When I ran wands with v jets I always put a filter setup from a t jet into the trigger of the wand to catch everything before it passed through just because of how much of a pain they are. Also I always ran the v jets with a check valve and filter on them but they had a habit of breaking down fairly quick compared to the trigger one.

There are several places online that sell them as well as the check valves which help with the dripping jets. I like to have both. I also have a filter before my wand valve, but I find that won't stop jet clogging as well.
Yup those are the best. Just don't forget you have one when your wand starts spraying slow.
I've been noticing my Hydroforce spraying slow lately. I finally took that filter that's in the handle off to check it and that was the problem. It had a lot of scale and crud in it. It was pretty easy to clean out though. I'm about ready to need to buy a whole new sprayer though because this one's got some years on it.

The blocks are chrome plated brass and we have wore out the chrome and then the internal cone diameter eventually enlarged from the nozzle to the outboard 1/4" male threads to the point that it won't pull chems at all even on a fresh rebuild. 7-8 years of higher heat use is about the end of the block in my experience.

Mine's old enough I can't really remember when I bought it. I probably have a record of it somewhere back in the last decade. I think it's still rebuildable but just don't think it's worth the effort at this point. I got my money's worth out of it! :)
