Is it a good idea to change from Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) to triphasil bcz I want a proper period?

In brief: Sure
Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is designed to make your period lighter and shorter. If you want to have a heavier and longer cycle, for whatever reason, switching to a traditional birth control pill would certainly be an option.
There is no health benefit though to having a longer and heavier period.
