I got a good offer on a IC-737. I would like to operate on 6 meters as well. Can I change the 737 to a 736 by adding 6 meters?

Sure, if you add a bunch of parts and probably change the software and final unit.

They're trying to tell you that it would very likely be a lot easier -- and less expensive in both time and money -- to purchase a 6-meter radio.

Sounds like you really want/need a '736 or some other 6 Meter capable radio.  Why not look for a '736 or an IC-756Pro, or Pro2.  Any would likely be cheaper than the '737, plus the time and materials to make it something which it isn't--a '736.
