I am working on laser_assembler package porting to ROS2, in that sensor_msgs package is used. But I could not find point_cloud_conversion.h file in sensor_msgs package of ROS2. Does anyone know any alternative option for this file.

point_cloud_conversion.h in sensor_msgs provides converters between the PointCloud and PointCloud2 data formats. I'd suggest that not supporting the old PointClouds format in the ROS2 version might be a reasonable. If it is required for some use cases, that file is relatively compact and you could submit a ported version to the ROS2 version of sensor_msgs in a PR.
