Like woody said. A VFD is good for one motor. Controls would have to be rewired as well.

To use the VFD you will need to wire around the starter and any e-stops in place, but if you stick with 60hz any other secondary electrics should work fine. Any e-stops can be wired into the low voltage accessory circuit of the VFD so they will work as before. The economics all depends on whether the OP does indeed not acquire any more 3ph machines or possibly lucks into a used motor/starter that will work.
