In an electric motor, at the moment that the half-turn of the rotor (central electromagnet) completes, the field of this electromagnet

it flips

if you think about it, if you put two positive or two negative sides of a magnet together what happens? one flips because they aren't attracting

Is it possible for a simple machine to convert energy from one form to another?

Yes, a simple machine can create friction, and friction can create heat. You are converting mechanical energy to thermal energy.

What is the difference between permanent and electro magnet?

A permanent magnet is always magnetised (example is a simple bar magnet). An electromagnet is only magnetised while an electrical current is flowing through the coil. Once the electricity is switched off, the electromagnet ceases to be magnetised.
