If I understood the original inquiry correctly, the person has some program
that generates code for an HP Laserjet II, but wants to print on a different
machine (pref. a PostScript printer or any device that understands HPGL).
The above solution works, but for the opposite problem.

I have no solution for HP Laserjet II to PostScript, other than to suggest
the poster contact the suppliers of whatever software produced the output
he/she wants to change, and ask *them* for a PostScript or HPGL driver.
Or use a different package.  Or tell the suppliers of the package that
their product will be dropped if it doesn't produce PostScript output
post-haste.

Good luck!
