Freshwater to saltwater

I've got a fish tank that is a aqueal 60l
Hexagon tank and It has a pump in the filter that brings the water up then it flows through biological filtration(ceramic rings) then through filter floss and then a sponge then goes back to the tank would this filtration and live rock be enough for a salt water tank.

For the light it is a bulb fitted into the top which probably wouldn't be ok for a salt water tank but the filtration is the first priority

Live rock really only needs circulation to work properly itself.
So you are probably fine with the filter IMO.
60l is not a lot of water especially after adding substrate and LR.
You may still need to add a circulation pump .
The light doesn't matter if you are not keeping corals or inverts.
Fish can care or less about lighting.
It is mostly for your pleasure ..Until you decide you want corals or inverts.
The you need proper lighting.
Jump in the water is fine!

The only reason I want to change it
Is the fact that if I buy a new aquarium it will cost a lot

It doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg if you can buy one used or at a dollar a gallon sale if there is one in your area. I personally would point you in that direction as these hexagon tanks are awful when it comes to getting the flow going well enough to not have dead spots...and all those corners lead to many dead spots for the build up of excess food and poop.

I live in the UK where live rock and aquariums are more expensive.

You should look on gumtree or eBay. I just sold my Rio 180 with and ehiem 2217 canister filter, gravel, heater and decor for £120. I bought the tank for £100. There are bargains available.
