In brief: No, however.....

Both HPV (human papilloma virus) and herpes virus are separate germs that are transmitted through sexual contact.
HPV cannot turn into herpes any more than an apple could turn into an orange.However, both germs can be transmitted at the same time and may emerge at different times.
