Don't think that's possible. Due to the latch location on the full doors, you can't cut them low enough to attach soft upper door assembly (you'd be cutting off the door latches and have no way to open the door).

Notice how high the latches sit on a full door (latch is about even with the upper door hinge)


On a half door, the latches sit much lower (latch is much lower than the upper door hinge)


If you want half doors I'd recommend buying a pair of used ones.

Do you already have the soft half doors? If so, maybe what you want to do is buy or fab up a door skin for them. You could easily fab up something like this using the door frame:
