Once you have been separated for more than 2 years you can get the marriage dissolved easily. You can convert to Islam any time you like of course, The religion doesnt have any legal status
But you cant marry until the previous marriage is dissolved as you are correct, that this would be bigamy. It doesnt matter if you married overseas, as if you live here you can get the marriage dissolved
