My Stack Overflow account is using an OpenID to login. Can I convert this to a normal Stack Overflow account? Any suggestions?

There is no such thing as a "normal stackoverflow account". Stack Exchange does offer its own OpenIDs, and you can add one of those to your account if you want. Go to your profile page, and click "my logins" at the top:
Choose "add more logins…", and at the bottom of that page click the link under "To create a new Stack Exchange account, click here". Once you've added the Stack Exchange OpenID to your account you can optionally remove your other OpenID, through the same "my logins" dialog
