I have xf80 mm macro lens which is awesome, and I might be buying the Sony a9ii or sonyar7iv. Is there a converter out there where I could use this lens on a Sony?

Not possible (without added optical elements that would raise the cost and lower the optical quality), because the "flange focal distance" for Sony E-mount cameras is greater than for Fuji X-mount lenses. (And that's even before you add the thickness for a necessary adapter). In addition, the Fuji X lenses are designed for APS-C size sensors, so the "image circle" projected by the lens would be too small to cover the larger full-frame sensor of the Sony cameras you mention.
