The frequency of the generated voltage depends on the speed of your engine. I assume it's a gasoline engine. It's probably spinning at about 3600 rpm. You need to get a mechanic to fiddle with the govenor and drop it down to 3000 rpm. 50HZ is 83 percent of 60Hz so you need 83 percent of whatever speed you are currently running. My question is, why bother?

Will a 220v 60Hz appliance opperate with a power supply of 240v 50Hz?

It must state on the appliance, that it will work at 240v, 50hz. If it does not clearly state it on the name plate, damage to the appliance will occur.

Can a 230v 50 Hz transformer works at 220v 60hz?

Yes, there is no problem using a transformer specified for 230V-50Hz with a voltage of 220V-60Hz. Transformers in this range of voltage are designed for 220 to 240V and 50 to 60Hz.

How does 50hz and 60hz differ from one another?

50 cycles/sec is 50Hz and 60cycles/sec is 60Hz

Can you convert to 60hz from 50hz?

If the power is being produced by a generator the frequency can be controlled. The frequency is governed by the speed of the generator. Lower the revolutions of the generator will lower the frequency the generator produces. Increase the revolutions of the generator and the frequency will increase. You could also use static inverters. Use a 12 vdc or 24 vdc inverter designed for the American market. Transform and rectify the 50hz power down to the 12 or 24v, required for the inverter. A rotary converter would use a 50hz motor to drive a 60hz AC generator.
