You cannot convert a file from DST format to EMB format. In fact, you can simply save it in the format using the Wilcom program. But it will not be the same.
DST file format is a set of stitches. With indication of coordinates for the embroidery machine.
EMB format is more a vector format. There are pointers coordinates areas with fill parameters (densiry, color, type).

There is a way you can save such file in .EMB, here it is:

Open Wilcom, go to File, then click Open. When the Open windows pops up, make sure to indicate (in the dropdown menu) that you´re looking for .DST files. Then proceed to the folder in which you have you DST file, select it and voilá.

Now that you have opened it, go to Save as and select EMB format.
 

As diver361 pointed, the problem is that you will only get a coordinates file, not very useful for modification.

You are both right EMB is a native file format. The working file the software creates when saving your design in Wilcom. It retains all information about the design. DST is the machine file format exported from the software so your embroidery machine can see the design. Unfortunately DST does not retain colour information. You would then need a colour chart to replicate the designs original looks.
