Is there any product on the market that can retrofit a gravity-fed toilet into one using Pressure-Assist technology without replacing the entire toilet?

No clogs. I replaced the current flush valve several times & it'll flush fine one time then it won't complete the flush on the next time. Then you have to wait for it to fill up (& it's usually at a higher bowl level) then flush again. We're on a well with a good (Kinetico) water filtration system. The other toliets I've replaced vales with good results.

And at least 30 PSI have you considered a flushoneter?

Flushometer, ever go into a mens room and see a urinal? Ever go into an air port and see a nice chrome valve with a handle sticing out of the aide or a black cap that flushes itself when you stand?

That is a flushometer

No. Gravity fed toilets are not designed for pressure assist flushing. You will need to replace the whole fixture.
