*facepalm* yes, it can be done, get a gas powered generator, figure what the max watts the welder would use, then get one double the output or more. plug it in like you'd plug it into a wall.

.  No. An electric welder uses a transformer. A gas-driven welder uses a motor-generator set.
TIG - yes

or Google "stick welder to TIG conversion kit"

MIG - no
MIG welding requires a Constant Voltage (CV) supply, and stick welders use a Constant Current (CC) supply. The power supplies are incompatible with MIG welding.

What do you mean? MIG?
If so, the answer is "buy a MIG welder and Ebay the stick welder"
