Hi Yanting,
No, I do not think you can use uv2sfvpf to do what you want. Have you
looked at the zonal_mpsi function?

If that does not suit your needs I am not sure that NCL has a function that
would work for you.
If you have any further questions or comments please respond to the
ncl-talk email list.
