Yes it can. But leave this work to a qualified electrician. The consequences of doing this improperly range from failure of the cooktop to work, to damage to the cooktop, to an electrical fire, to injury or death due to electrocution. The hazards cannot be stated strongly enough.

What problems can occur with modification or rewiring operations and how can these be overcome?

Rewiring: 1. Obtain the existing documentation, electrical drawing. If you do not have, make one before attempting to rewire. 2. Note down the minute details of the existing drawings, terminal number etc 3. Note down the wire type, sizes. Carry out the rewiring. Modification: 1. Obtain the existing documentation, electrical drawing. If you do not have, make one before attempting to rewire. 2. Note down the minute details of the existing drawings, terminal number etc 3. Prepare a modified drawing, with terminal numbers etc. Carry out modification. Understand the functionality and ensure you have the same or modified functionality after rewiring or modification. Test the circuit before you hand over to the end user.

Can the Henry Hoover 110v be converted to 240v?

The equipment itself can not be converted as it would mean rewiring the motor to operate on 240 volts. The cost factor for a rewind would be too high. The amperage draw for this type of appliance is on the high side, so using a transformer is also out of the question because of the transformer's cost. If you do decide to use a transformer it will have to be sized to the Hoover wattage. Find the wattage of the equipment by multiplying its amps times 110. This will roughly give you the size transformer that you would need if you go that route.

Compare the modified drawing against the standards you followed.
