If the structures are identical other than some of the element and attribute names, you could write a rule-based XSLT sheet
that replaces the names. This would get very tedious if there are
a lot of names to be changed.

The XSD is not relevant to the process except to inform you in
writing the transformation. It simply doesn't carry the information
needed to bridge the gap. I suppose one could write an XSLT that would
examine both the XSD and the sample file, make an attempt at guessing
the transformation based on certain structural similarities, and output
templates based on these guesses. But you would still have to work through
the result to ensure that it was correct, and you would be more likely to overlook something.

Is there any way to convert an XML file to another one if

- the source XML file is given
- the target XSD schema is given?

The XSD schema fits to the source file, but have different tag names, etc.

thanks a lot, Gergely Hungary
