The enzyme is called reverse transcriptase.
The class of HIV drugs that block this process are called reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus. A retrovirus is a RNA virus that replicates through a DNA intermediate. HIV synthesises DNA from RNA by the action of reverse transcriptase enzyme.
You might be referring to the reverse-transcription that many retroviruses use (a virus with an RNA that turns into DNA). By using the enzyme reverse transcriptase, viruses like HIV can make a DNA from RNA template.

RNA Polymerase is an enzyme that synthesizes the formation of RNA from a DNA template during transcription.
The enzyme that transcribes the DNA into RNA is called RNA polymerase.
to transcript the viral RNA into DNA so it can be implemented into the host cell's DNA.
This is reverse transcriptase. HIV drugs that block this part of the HIV lifecycle are called reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
The HIV virus is an RNA virus, so you know the sequence AUCUU is the RNA sequence. (You also know it is RNA because it contains uracil.) HIV is a retrovirus, so its RNA will be transcribed to DNA by the enzyme reverse transcriptase and then inserted into the host's genome. The RNA sequence of AUCUU would be transcribed to TAGTT.
