Is there game like this, where bishops transforms into rooks (and vice versa), and knights transforms camels. Maybe, pawns also transforms into berolina pawns.

In 2001 David Howe posted Chess on a Longer Board with a few Pieces Added. His Changeling piece starts out as a Halfling Bishop and alternates its movement with a Halfling Rook. A Game Courier search for [Chess on a*] will turn up old games in this variant, plus some others.

I once considered replacing the Queen in standard chess with a Rotator, moving R-N-B-R and so forth. MATE-IN-3 PROBLEM

White: King b3, Rotator[Rook mode] g2, Black: King b1.

1.[R]a2 Ka1 2.[N]c3 check Kb1 3.[B]e1 mate.

A subvariant which could be played with a standard set would be one in which the changing of the moving Knight to a Bishop is accompanied by a change of a stationary Bishop (of the player's choice, and as long as they still have one) to a Knight and vice versa.
