can hydrogen fluoride (H(1,1)-1) F(18,9) become neon(18,10) under extreme heat and pressure?

It is impossible for us to conceive of such a heat or pressure. Yet all the elements were presumably formed in the furnace of stars by fusion under extreme heat and pressure.
So although it is well outside our abilities I would have to say that it has happened at some previous time.

If by extreme you mean as in the sun, then yes, and assuming H and F already were formed. Nothing on earth has that kind of heat or pressure.
Neon, being an element, cannot be formed by a chemical reaction.
