Is it possible to convert my Canadian Gmail/Play Store account to US?

I got a Canadian registered Gmail/Play Store account. There is even credit in the Play Store account due to a gift card redemption. Is it possible to convert it to the US? If so, what will happen to the CAD credit in the Play Store?

Can you use VPN (since you are already in China) to change your location to US? Try to put a US credit card, I'm not sure it will help.

Is there something in the USA Play store you want to have?

You may not be able to change to USA while the account has a Canadian credit, similar to not being able to change the region for an iTunes account of iTunes has a credit balance.

I have a Canadian Gmail account with a gift card balance. I purchased a movie from USA YouTube and paid using a Canadian credit card because I could not pay using my Canadian gift card balance.
