Converting a refrigerator into a satisfactorily operating freezer is quite the difficult undertaking if possible at all. It would require much more than changing to a different thernostat that cycles the compressor at a lower temperature. The key word here is "satisfactorily".
Your defrost element has failed in the freezer, ice has built up in the freezer cooling cores and air cant pass through them to the fridge, you need to defrost the unit totally and replace the elements, they are at the inside rear, behind the plate, also check your internal fan is running in the freezer, could be another fault.

repairs should be performed by a qualified technician. if there isn't ice in the ice bucket located in the freezer you have a water flow problem. if there is water going to the filter and nothing out of the freezer then you have a clogged freezer replace it. if these things are ok then yes it could be the electronic control. filter failure is a common problem.
You are probably right that it is always running. This is because the thermostat/sensor has gone bad. The fridge adjusts by a door that allows air to come from the freezer to the fridge side. Therefore this will still work...
You will need to replace or have the thermostat replaced....
