Hi @SarveshPandey-7139
You can't use SQL web license on SQL standard license.
MS SQL Server Editions:
Web Edition is a special edition for web hosting providers distributed under the Microsoft Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) only;
Standard Edition offers basic database management, reporting and analytic features. The maximum RAM usage is up to 128 GB, the host may have 4 sockets or 24 cores (you can configure replication between multiple SQL Server instances);

There are two SQL Server Licensing models:
Server+CAL
Per Core

SQL Server Standard may be licensed using either of the models (Server+CAL or Per Core).

SQL Server Enterprise is licensed using Per Core model only.

I got a Microsoft Blog which clearly says you can swap Azure SQL Server Standard to Azure SQL Web
