You are something nerds cannot obtain
Change your swear to a language so you connect dots
Move your en to the finish to hold someone's property
Change your en to a swear to do something happily
Move from hell to a growl to cope with a tragic experience

What have you turned into, and how?

    $\begingroup$ I don't mean to offend you, but these puzzles just seem... low-effort - like they're easily mass-produced. I suggest adding some rhyme and meter to make them look like you spent more time on them. $\endgroup$

Proposed Solution:

LIFE -> GRIEF

You are something nerds cannot obtain

Life : Nerds have no life, as the saying goes.

Change your swear to a language so you connect dots

Life -> Line : "F" is an abbreviation of a particular swear word; change the f to n.

Move your en to the finish to hold someone's property

Line -> Lien

Change your en to a swear to do something happily

Lien -> Lief (see above for explanation of F)

Move from hell to a growl to cope with a tragic experience

Lief -> Grief : change L (sounds like "hell") to GR ("grr" is an onomatopoeia of a growl)
