Hello, is there a way to migrate from CentOS 8 to CentOS Stream because when I try installing CentOS Stream packages using 'dnf' it gives me an error since there are no more files linked to it because the distribution was discontinued at the end of 2021 (or atleast that is my take on it). If someone could offer any useful information I would be grateful.

Welcome to the forums
Here is the answer I think you're looking for.
Thanks for the reply, I will try this approach and let you know if I still can't resolve it.
Would you recommend migrating to Rocky Linux or AlmaLinux? (In case I can't migrate to CentOS Stream)

For me, it comes down to... do you like community supported projects (Rocky)
Or corporate backed projects (Alma). Alma is sponsored by CloudLinux.
Because it has some corporte backing, I have noticed Alma usually comes out
with newer versions, a little ahead of Rocky.

Other than that... I think the only real difference is the logos.
