Hello,
is there a way to migrate the products from Prestashop (1.4.9.0) to Virtuemart (3.4.2) on Joomla 3.9.2 ?

Can you not export products and reimport it?

I only know of commercial solutions:

Although it should be possible to export the database from Prestashop, manipulating the tables and importing into VM - but to save time and hair loss I'd use one of the services.
