LSA vs. Experimental

I am trying to find out the correct information on this, so if you are just speculating on the correct answer, don't bother. The question is: If a STOL CH750 is licensed as an experimental is it possible to change it back to an LSA or go from LSA to experimental. I have a private license which will allow flying a LSA whereas a LSA license will not allow private privileges (of course).  I heard…
