Fisher made fireplace inserts and also the papa bear had a rear exiting flue which could be run up a chimney and all Fisher stoves had a flat top that works great for cooking but no oven. I have used mine as an oven though by simply putting a wire rack on the top of the stove and using a cover. I also use a dutch oven on top of our wood stove.
Never heard of a wood cook stove insert though. As far as converting an insert to a wood stove, my neighbor heats his house with an insert just using it as a freestanding stove.

If I am only for myself, what am I?
If not now, when?
