    Can I get a 7 position 36mm carousel to fit in a EFW with an 8 positions 1.25" carousel?

    No, not likely.
    Most filter wheels are designed to know the spacing between positions and number of filters.
    Some have different apertures eg 2" vs 1.25" or T-thread (42mm).
    What wheel do you have?

    That is the one I would need. I have an STF8300M.
