I suggest that you post more info about what you are trying to do.

Conversion of file formats is usually done by using 3d-party software. Have you done a Google search for software that will convert those two formats?

Like hamluis said, there's not nearly enough info in your post to go on. .dat files can be anything. ELF files are (to the best of my knowledge) the executable file format for Linux. ISOs are ISO-9660 (CD/DVD) images. ELF files and ISO files, as described, are vastly different and are not convertible one to the other.
