When you say "SF2," do you mean SoundFont 2.x files? Or did you perhaps mean to say "SFF2" or Style File Format 2 (a.k.a. "SFF GE") files?

I know of no way to use SF2 files in the PSR-E433, although you can certainly use the PSR-E433 as a MIDI keyboard controller to control a sampler or soft synth or plug-in host that's using SoundFont files for its sounds.

On the other hand, if you actually meant style files, there is a utility program called "Style Format 2 Converter" by programmer Jørgen Sørensen. It runs under Windows and requires the .NET framework, but you might be able to run it under Wine.
