How can I make my particles change from spheres to cubes , when they enter a specific field ?

You could use a collision event to switch the index used for instanced particles. You could also use a distance-driven control where when a certain distance threshold is crossed the new index is used.

So - you would have two objects as your instanced shapes. Index 0 (sphere object) would be used until the switch to Index 1 which would swap the sphere for the cube object.

Some scripting will be requried.
