How do i convert an ASCII file to a binary file using the JCL without using the FTP? Are there any utilities for this conversion?

I'm not sure what you mean by BINARY, since that is usually one of the forms of ASCII data (i.e., ASCII can be either ASCII TEXT or ASCII BINARY) when dealing with Unix machines.

One way to setup data translation is with the DFSORT TRAN=ALTSEQ feature, using your own translation table:
Code:

//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT                             
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*                                 
//SORTIN    DD DSN=YOUR INPUT DATASET,
//             DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT   DD DSN=YOUR OUTPUT ASCII DATASET,
//             DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                 
//             UNIT=SYSDA,                               
//             SPACE=(CYL,(X,Y),RLSE)
//SYSIN     DD *                                       
  OPTION COPY
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,80,TABLE=ALTSEQ)
  ALTSEQ CODE=(...)
