There are many good tutorials for R. As a "newbie", you need to avail
yourself of them. Although this forum is meant to "help", it is not
designed to provide tutorials. Understanding basic R functionality is
largely assumed here.

Searching on "tutorials on date-time data in R" brought up many
possibilities. Choose one or more that best suits your needs.

As for your specific query, you seem not to understand R's "vectorization"
behavior: your statement, "it can only convert one day of the year at a
time", is false. Again, search for a tutorial on "vectorization in R." But
note that the "Intro to R" tutorial that ships with R already has this.
